The Blackstone Winemaker’s Select Merlot displays a bright strawberry nose with expressive flavours of blackberry and cherry mingling with hints of vanilla and smoky notes from oak aging. Powerful yet supple, with a smooth, lingering finish, this accessible wine pairs wonderfully with beef tenderloin, wild mushroom stew, or planked salmon. Blackstone Winery created the Winemaker’s Select range to produce smooth, flavoursome, harmonious wines with rich fruit, supple texture, and balanced oak. Early on, this approach found its ideal expression in Blackstone Merlot, which soon became and still remains America’s Favourite Merlot. Winemaker’s Select wines are sourced from premier growing regions throughout California, each meticulously selected to contribute certain nuances to the final blend. Drawing from the best parcels in the same areas year after year ensures Winemaker’s Select wines maintain the consistency that is Blackstone’s heritage. The final blend of Blackstone Merlot contains 79% Merlot, 13% Syrah (Shiraz), 4% Petit Syrah 2% Tannat and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Blackstone Winery is proud to be a certified member of California’ s Sustainable Winegrowing Program
