Natalie's Score: 88/100

A lovely, medium- to full-bodied red with delicious notes of mocha and black plums. Smooth and blanced. A terrific wine that will appeal to many palates, which makes ideal as a gift or for dinner party.

Merlot food pairings: Moroccan-spiced rack of lamb.

One hundred percent Merlot. A single vineyard bottling from the upper edge of Hawkes' Red Winery Vineyard, planted in 1973. Showing the vineyard's distinctive cherry tones, along with plum, chocolate, vanilla, and a slight touch of earthiness, making a connection to the Old World and Pomerol. However wine has a lush body and smooth finish that plants it firmly in the New World. Try it with Moroccan-spiced rack of lamb.
