The Montoya Arroyo Seco Merlot has been skillfully blended from family vineyards and other select Monterey County appelations. The subtle influence of these different microclimates add depth and complexity to the final blend. It is blended to deliver the dark cherry and berry flavors Monterey is known for. These are framed in cedary oak with tones of honey and spice. This is a supple wine that a red wine lover will enjoy with or without food.
