Outerbound - Merlot - Sonoma County
Overview: Brought up among the grapevines of California, we are a new era of winemakers, banding together and venturing out into new and uncharted territory. As the 6th generation of winegrowers in the Phillips family, we wanted to forge a new path in the rugged terrain of the North Coast wine region. It's true that the steep hillsides and cool valleys make for a vastly different terrain than our old stomping grounds of Lodi, but therein lies the appeal. We're united in our love of both wine and adventure, and we see the search for the best varietals and vineyards as our next challenge. We are the North Coast Wine Co., and we're excited to help you discover the many varied appellations of this incredible wine region.
Tasting Notes: Lovingly referred to as a “Cab-lover’s Merlot” by our winemaker, the
Sonoma County Merlot offers lush aromas and flavors of boysenberry, raspberry and cherry layered with polished tannins and lively acidity on the finish.
Pairing: Gorgonzola, lamb, roast squash.
Format/ABV: 750 ml/14.0%
