American Merlot is a dry red wine with red and black fruit and oaky notes on the nose. Deep in color, it has round, chewy tannins with intense flavors of cherry and blackberry and a finish that hints of oak, chocolate, and vanilla.

American Syrah is a dry red wine that displays light oak, plum, and baking spices on the nose with black raspberry, plum, baking spices and white pepper on the palate. Made entirely from Syrah grapes and aged in French, American, and Eastern European Oak for 23 months, American Syrah pairs well with grilled meats.
