Ash Ridge Estate Bridge Pa Merlot 2019 $21.99

From those russet-red, iron rich soils of the Bridge Pa Triangle comes this dark, inky-scarlet sensation from Lauren Swift and the team at Ash Ridge. Showing earthy, dried herb, tar, black olive and mushroomy notes drifting across the blueberry and blackberry mid-palate, it’s a  soft yet generously dusty wine. It’s tannins are powdery, with smoky edges and create a long, warming finish. It needs a good whoomp of oxygen so swirl it baby swirl it!
