Merryvale Profile 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Muted initially before slowly unlacing faint baking spices and rose, this wine is jammy, with a plushness of oak and weight. It offers a structure and power dotted in cedar, tar and leather, finishing in pleasing waves of coconut and chocolate.
Well-centered on pure, rich blackberry and boysenberry flavors, this is presented in a supple manner, accented by gravel-laced tannins. Ends with a dusty, loamy aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2026. 1,400 cases made.
