Shiloh Winery Merlot Shiraz 2006
Shiloh wines are produced in the heart of ancient vineyards in the Land of Israel. By any standard this is not an everyday wine. Serve on a special occasion alongside fresh pasta with short rib ragu grilled game meats or roast duck with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms sauteed in butter.
Shiloh Merlot-Shiraz is an exquisite and unusual blend from a boutique winery in the Judean Hills. With a perfume of juicy red raspberry and currant the flavors begin with more ripe berry fruit and gradually unfold to reveal dried flowers and bramble with hedonistic vanilla and cocoa powder coming through on the earthy finish.
