Our Napa Valley Merlot has ripe cherry and berry aromas that are in full bloom in this wine. It is what one would to refer to as a Cab Lover's Merlot. With mocha, red currant and vanilla notes, this medium bodied, well balanced wine with silky, smooth tannins ends in a long, lingering finish.

"A finely made Merlot with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Malbec and Petit Verdot blended in. It offers soft red currant fruit, with a nice integration of tannins on the palate. There's a long grip of black pepper and clove on the finish, and the wine is balanced in weight and alcohol."
