This Merlot has rich aromas of ripe red berry fruit and bing cherry, along with notes of dried herbs. Flavors of red cherries, cola, cloves and spice dominate the palate, with just a hint of toasty oak thrown in. Try it with our recipe for sausage, pepper and onion skewers.
Introducing Cellar No.8 - robust, full-flavored red wines steeped in a rich heritage. It was back in 1881 when Italian immigrants founded the Asti Winery in Sonoma County. Applying methods and expertise from the old country, they created immortal reds and formed an entire community around which winemaking was it's soul. Today, Cellar No.8 pays tribute to the original location where these pioneers cellared their wines more than 100 years ago. At the same time, these flavorful reds reflect the lively character and hearty spirit of the people themselves.
