There’s nothing our California expert, Clare Tooley, loves more than hunting down a velvety, great-value Merlot.She was thrilled to discover Cooper Point, and when you taste it, you’ll understand why.

Crafted by former Opus One star, Aaron Bader, Cooper Point showcases a plush, fruit-forward style. Aaron sourced the Merlot grapes from some of his favorite vineyards, all of which thrived thanks to California’s fantastic 2016 vintage (the latest in an “unprecedented and historic succession of great years,” writes top critic Robert Parker). In fact, Clare was so impressed with the quality of Aaron’s Merlot that she took the whole lot. Judges at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competitionwere quite impressed, awarding it a gold medal at their 2018 show.

Look forward to a beautiful ruby color in the glass, leading to expressive plum aromas. The silky-smooth palate reveals more plum, plus ripe strawberry and just a touch of oaky spice. A satisfying red-wine aperitif, or delicious match for crispy duck, mushroom risotto, and more.
