The 2018 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot is medium-dark in colour with a red hue. Varietal aromas of black plum and violet meld with the light barrel signature of baking spices and toasted pastry. A generous fraction of Malbec in the blend accentuates bright fruit tones and contributes notes of pomegranate and hibiscus flower. This wine is lively and bright on the palate and cascades to a lengthy, red fruit finish.
Delicious with grilled sausage and roasted vegetables.
