Notes - Baked Plum, Cedar, Cinnamon & Blackcurrant
The notes of baked plum, cedar, cinnamon, and blackcurrant are on both the nose and palate for this Merlot. I don't cook, but if I did I imagine this is what my kitchen would smell like after making a pie. The wine has a strong medium finish of baked plums in a flakey crust dusted with cinnamon.
Pairing - The Pana Merlot is paired with the Crossing Booties based on color and structure of the shoe. The shoes are a rustic purple, which is a combination of colors from the plum, cinnamon, and cedar. Another characteristic that brings these shoes and wine together is the top of the booties resemble the lattice of a pie.
