About the wine

Smooth, sumptuous and OH-so-juicy Merlot
  • This juicy Merlot is a flavor explosion! Tom packed your dynamite red with bright red fruits, dark plums, and a smooth, toasty finish that rivals big-name Bordeaux wines (but without the price tag).

  • Harvesting lush, flavor-packed grapes from Lodi and Lake County let Tom capture full-on oomph for your Merlot – aging the wine with French Oak to magnify rich, decadent flavors.

  • This limited-production red’s just begging to be sipped alongside herb-crusted lamb chops or a sizzling steak. Pop it open an hour before serving dinner to really let the flavors open up!

Best before
Probably best over the next 4 years, though it may improve longer.

Serving advice
For the first 6-9 months after release, open 45-60 minutes before serving. If you don't have time for that, just do a lot of swirling in the glass. ;)

Food match
Grilled steak, lamb chops, or duck confit.

Meet the winemaker - Tom Shula

  • Tom Shula was one of our first 1,000 Angels. His passion for winemaking led him to make a barrel or two in his garage.
  • His wines were so fantastic that we took a huge gamble. 49,999 other Angels teamed up and raised about a million bucks for Tom to work with his dream vineyards and make his dream wines at a professional, state-of-the-art winery!
  • If you like rooting for the little guy, Tom's your man. He started in his garage and now he's making award-winning wines and living his dream. All thanks to you!
