Natalie's Score: 91/100

Lots of mocha and dark chocolate on the nose from generous, but balanced oak aging. Some black fruit underneath and mouth-watering juiciness for a wide range of dishes from steak to grilled pork chops. Make a splash with Cannonball at your next potluck gathering. This Californian red wine features Bing cherry, fig, spice, anise and dark chocolate on the nose. Pair with a pepper steak.

Merlot food pairings: pork chops, turkey, roast duck, beef, coq au vin..

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fragrant ripe raspberry and blackcurrant notes on nose & palate with yummy dark chocolate added on palate. Grilled pork chops plus more Merlot!
Tasted April 2018
Cannonball 2015 Merlot is a crown pleaser. On the palate, this California deep-red wine is juicy with dark fruit, savoury spice and mocha. So balanced and versatile, this creamy Merlot will pair with just about anything including chocolate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
