My girlfriend and I attended a wedding in Sonoma this weekend. It was beautiful weather up there, but I drank too many of the crushed and fermented version of these.
These are Merlot grapes.
Highlight of the wedding/reception. The groom is a bit of a wine/spirit freak. In the early evening, they served several varieties of port chosen specifically to go with the chocolate covered strawberries they also served. Pretty magic.
