Californian Zinfandel is one of the world's most underrated big reds and this version is silky and luscious, perfumed with raspberry and boysenberry, with black pepper, toasted oak and pipe tobacco on the palate.

2017 Merlot, Meinert Wines
When crafting his Merlot, the winemaker gains inspriration by opening bottles of Pomerol from the top chateaux! This has all the wonderful, velvet softness that you expect of Merlot, with ever so much more personality. On the nose, the rounded, supple fruit gains complexity from a roasted pepper and herbal character. The texture is beautifully supple, and the tannin is really refined. A lovely wine with excellent balance.
