2015 Geppetto Cab Merlot
Cabernet Merlot as a blend is making something of a comeback at the moment and still deserves more recognition than it currently gets as a wine style. The Cabernet component gives the wine firmness and authority and the Merlot brings a soft approachability. The nose is like a basket of mixed red berries and the palate is soft and gentle without harsh or astringent tannins. The acid is noticeable without being overbearing which makes this wine such a good accompaniment to grills and braises or firm cheeses.
