Save $2.00 (7%)
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
Our 2013 Carneros Merlot has aromas of blackberry, bramble, blueberry, light baking spices, freshly grated ginger, violets and Sarsaparilla. On the palate, the entry is soft and velvety with good balance and refined tannins that are wrapped around a nice acidic structure. Flavors of dark berry and violets finish with a hint of dark chocolate. In short, it is quintessential Carneros Merlot.
This wine blends in 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, offering a nose of chocolate, barbecue and tobacco. Burly, yet balanced, the highlights include black currant, cherry, clove and plenty of cedar and sage.
