Our full-bodied Merlot is all about taste. It’s tough not to enjoy the blended flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and hints of oak that create a velvety richness.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - This is an indulgent, fruit-driven merlot with flavors ranging from toasted oak all of the way to a picnic fruit salad. The body is full and lush, but the tannins are whisper-soft making for an easy going and pleasing wine. (Jun 2016)
Our Merlot is all about taste. It blends flavors of black cherry, ripe plum, and oak for a velvety richness. Well-rounded and very approachable, the layers of fruit flavor give this wine an enjoyable depth.
|Smooth and approachable fruit flavor matches very well with a wide range of foods including pork roast, pasta with rich tomato sauce, poultry, as well as grilled meats and vegetables.
|Since brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo began to turn their dream into reality over 75 years ago, the roots of the Gallo family tree have extended deep into the Winery. Today their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren work in the Winery, carrying on the family tradition and values – a strong work ethic, a drive for perfection and a focus on quality.
The Gallo family still believes family ownership is the most effective way for the Winery to continue as a world leader in the wine industry.
Today, E. & J. Gallo Winery is the world’s largest family-owned winery and the largest exporter of California wine.
