Blue Owl Merlot 2017

Blue Owl Merlot 2017

An elegant fruit-driven wine full of ripe cherries, blackcurrant fruit and a spicy undertone. The palate is rounded with supple tannins, good balance and finesse.

Pair with fresh pasta topped with basil, roasted cherry tomatoes, slithers of parmesan and drizzled with olive oil. Or open a bottle with friends while
sitting around the BBQ.
