Cannonball 2016 Merlot is a mocha and dark chocolate nose. This Californian deep-red wine red is juicy with dark fruit, savoury spice and mocha. So balanced and versatile, this creamy Merlot will pair with just about anything including chocolate.

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