Wine Thursday: Hanaiali’i Napa Valley Merlot

The Labor Day weekend approaches and you want to fire up your grill for this last hoorah for summer. So if you’re putting your best food forward you’ll want a great red in hand. No, this Merlot does not hail from Hawaii but rather Napa Valley – This pure, single vineyard expression of the Valley’s finest fruit embodies the partnership between two historic Napa Valley families, Smith Devereux, and 5-time GRAMMY® nominee, Amy Hānaialiʻi Gilliom. Thus, the name. And since you’re applying bold flavors to the grill you need to have a wine that can match those flavors and, of course, to enjoy on its own while cooking your vittles.
This is a bold “Cabernet drinker’s” Merlot, that brims with spicy aromas and rich flavors of plum, black raspberry, black cherry, cocoa and vanilla notes. Made to impress the most experienced oenophile and suit the palate of the casual wine drinker, this complex wine can be enjoyed now or cellared. And if red meat is not the main grilling attraction, it will pair beautifully with other savory meat dishes such as pork, lamb, red fleshed seafood and Hawaiian luau cuisine. Mahalo!
