You don't have to be tie-dyed t-shirt wearing hippie to love organic wines these days. Bonterra has fashioned a lovely rich Merlot that will please just about anyone. Aromas of ripe blackberries, black cherries and plums are gently wrapped in a wisp of smoky oak. A wonderful 5 p.m. wine, one I'd call "Mommy's little helper." Vintages Wine Panel: Bonterra’s Merlot is a testament to winemaker Bob Blue’s approach to winemaking. He has managed to make wines with organically grown grapes that display all the virtues of the technique without betraying the strengths of the grape variety. His Merlot is filled with aromas of raspberry, cherry and vanilla. It is round, ripe and well-structured. This wine, made from organic grapes, contains just 11 mg/L of free sulfur.

Merlot food pairings: grilled steak, cheeseburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, ostrich, veal stuffed sausages.
