Merlot is one of America's fastest growing red wines. Liberty Creek Merlot is characterized by smooth, rich plum and berry fruit flavors that create a round mouthfeel and soft finish. Not as full-bodied as Cabernet, not quite as fruity as Chianti, Liberty Creek Merlot delivers rich flavors of ripe raspberry and cherry, wrapped in a velvety softness that give it a character and quality all its own. The smooth finish of this wine is especially pleasing. With its characteristic softness, Liberty Creek Merlot can be admirably used to contrast dishes with big, bold flavors like pasta arrabiata, or to complement more subtly flavored recipes like eggplant parmesan.
