Wine Review: This dark ruby Merlot based wine opens with an attractive blueberry bouquet with hints of black cherry and vanilla. On the palate, this full bodied wine is very nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a pleasant blueberry with hints of plum and oak. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. The panel suggested that this wine would pair well with pot roast. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Napa Valley Red Wine reflects the power and intensity of its rugged, high elevation terroir, displaying excellent structure, strong tannins and a complex undercurrent of earthy minerality. Featuring extracted aromas of dark chocolate, mulled fruit, and spice, this robust wine also offers savory hints of porcini and soy. On the palate, mouth-filling flavors of blackberry, black currant, mocha, and menthol are accentuated by hints of lavender, graphite, herbs, and sweet oak.
