Josh Merlot, Vintage 2013, 750 Millilitre, $13.99
Josh Cellars. My father's name was Joseph, but his friends just called him Josh. Grape growers that I call friends helped handcraft the first vintage of Josh Cellars, a winemaker's wine we made just for each other. This Merlot offers rich plum and black cherry flavors, accented by savory spices and toasted oak, with a soft supple texture and long finish, and true to that first wine we made. Expressive and bold but smooth and approachable, it's a wine I make for your family, friends and the man I called Dad. - Joseph Carr, Founder. www.JoshCellars.com. Alc 13.5% by vol.
