Wine maker notes
Winemakerís notes: The 1999 Bedell Merlot beginswith hints of cocoa, spice and berry flavors on the nose. A first taste confirms the vibrant flavors of cherry, blackberry, raspberry and cola. Soft, yet firm tannins give the wine structure, and a long, deep finish positions this Merlot as an exceptional food wine . . . a wonderful companion to lamb shanks, venison noisettes and grilled tuna steaks.
