"The Sidekick Series from Iconic Wine represents the finest wine we could create at everyday drinking value. We work with multiple vineyard sources from around Lodi California. This allows us every year to assure we pull the best fruit for the price depending on the vintage, creating a trustworthy wine and perfect companion to you day to day adventures.

Sidekick Merlot 2021 draws inspiration from another great wine region, the Right Bank of Bordeaux, with a core of 92% merlot and compliment of 8% Cabernet Franc. It is fermented in stainless steel vertical fermenters.

Maceration is done for 16 to 20 days with a once-a-day pump over. A fourth of the merlot and all of the cabernet franc is then introduced to new French oak and aged for a minimum of six months. This wine is structured and earthy, but still carries enough red plum fruit to stay pleasantly in balance."
