This Yarden Merlot combines an aromatic orange peel-chocolate character with attractive plum and cherry fruit notes, layered with spices and hints of dried flowers. Rich oak rounds out the wine's sensory profile. Yarden Merlot's combination of richness and vibrancy make it a rewarding experience. While immediately enjoyable, Yarden Merlot will continue to improve with a few years of age and should stay in good shape for up to a decade if stored in good conditions. Yarden Merlot pairs well with any number of richly-flavored foods, such as roast duck, braised lamb shanks or pasta arrabbiata.
