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 on her last trip to sunny Lodi, and when you taste it, you’ll understand why.
It showcases the plush, fruit-forward style that’s become increasingly popular with wine fans and is especially rich, thanks to California’s fantastic 2018 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 this Merlot that she took the whole lot. She made a wise choice – Cooper Point has gone on to win silver medals from two top American competitions.
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.
