McCall Merlot Reserve Corchaug Estate 2010

Evoking the famed Burgundy appellation Vosne Romanée, known for its particularly soft elegance, the Corchaug Estate’s 2010 McCall Merlot Reserve expresses a delightful, if unusual, combination of cinnamon spice, mulled cider and feathery-light tannins. Sip this wine on its own—its charms are self-evident.
