GOLD MEDAL, 2005 SAN DIEGO NAT'L WINE COMP.
The fruit jumps out of the glass, with big black cherry flavors from entry to finish. The tannins are soft and there is a resonant touch of earth in the lingering finish.- WineSpectator

Steak with Mushroom Merlot Sauce Recipe
This steak recipe goes very well with merlot wine - Use some for the sauce, and the rest for your glass!
2 10oz ribeye steaks
2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 Tbsp butter
6oz shiitake mushrooms
3/4 cup merlot
1 Tbsp thyme
First, salt and pepper steaks on both sides. Heat the vegetable oil to medium high, and then cook steaks for about 3 minutes per side.
Put the steaks on a plate but keep the oil in the pan. Put the butter in the pan, along with the wine, chopped up mushrooms and chopped up shallots and reduce for 5-10 minutes. Pour this sauce over the steaks and serve.
