Cultivar Wine 2013 Carneros Merlot

We have used Merlot for a few of the Napa Cabernet wines in small additions to add aromas and structure to the Cabernet. A dark blue colored grape that is known for its softness and fleshiness. With the longer hangtime in Carneros our Merlot developed rich classic characteristics of Merlot with an added richness. Its brilliant red in the glass, with aromas of Dark Cherries, Plums, all spice and sweet vanilla. On the palate its rich and has sweet cherry fruit. A long finish with a touch of tannin. A great match for wild game, lamb and fall dishes.
