Bashing Merlot is oh so 2004. Here at Scheid, we have never wavered in our deep love of this alluring, classic Bordeaux variety. The geographical spread of our estate vineyards gives us the ability to craft a luscious and complex Merlot that is unabashedly juicy. As equally comfortable with prime rib as it is with pizza, it is a wine that will stand-up to full-flavored fare, but can also mellow out with more subtly-prepared dishes. Versatility is Merlot’s middle name and it is quite often our go-to red on the dinner table. Our 2016 vintage is a full-bodied wine loaded with black fruit character and enhanced by delicious spice and vanilla notes. Bold flavors framed by rich oak unfold into a long, plush finish.
