Cassegrain 2009 Edition Noir Merlot
When the weather cools I look for a wine with more body and warmth. The Cassegrain 2009 Edition Noir Merlot is a vibrant, ruby red wine with the aroma of deep rich fruit and the flavour of luscious sweet plums. It is a medium bodied red, with a gorgeous velvety mouth feel. The wine has benefited from new and season oak giving it a lovely soft well rounded appeal.
Enjoy a bottle lazing in front of fireplace with a rich, slow cooked dish such as a Maple Syrup Lamb Shank or Osso Bucco. The Edition Noir Merlot carries over nicely into a dessert, when served with a Bittersweet Chocolate & Praline Tart.
