We love the 2012 Sbragia Family Vineyards Merlot from the Home Ranch in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley to pair with a bone in rib-eye and crisp field greens topped with bacon. Lush dark fruitfruit flavors of black cherries and black currant combine with elegant balanced tannins, Mexican chocolate and pink peppercorn.
Alcohol by volume 14.6 percent, this wine is a fabulous buy at just $28. Visit Sbragia Family Vineyards website to get yours.
