This weeks Wine Wednesday was a special selection by G and it is the Field Stone Merlot. This is one of his go to wines when we want something good but at an even better price. This wine comes in at just under $20 and we were able to pick it up at Molly’s.
What I like about this wine is how smooth it is. Sometimes with red wine I get an almost sour taste that makes it hard to drink, but I don’t get that with this wine. In the nose I get chocolate and vanilla hints with some blackberry. With the taste I again get a berry flavor with a hint of vanilla that really smooths it out.
We paired this wine with some burgers and a salad and it was perfect. I highly recommend grabbing a bottle or two of this wine if you see it at your local liquor store.
I would link the website, however the label was recently purchased by Kendall Jackson and it looks like they took down their website and the tasting room in Sonoma is closed. I am not sure what this means for the label but hopefully Kendall Jackson will keep the Field Stone name and wines.
