Winemaker Notes: The Napa Valley Merlot sports a piercing fragrance of ripe red fruit that leaps from the glass, laced with light mulling spices and caramelized aromas. Concentrated, fresh berry flavors saturate the palate with a crushed velvet texture framed by refreshing acidity. The wine’s powerful finish offers hints of dried cherry skins and dark chocolate shavings.
