This Napa Merlot is a symphony of flavor and texture. This medium-bodied wine is both savory and fruit driven. Ripe cherry, succulent plum, and violets complement lavender and herbaceous aromas. These are enhanced with hints of black pepper, clove, toasted nuts, and vanilla. The well-rounded tannins bring a delightful velvety texture, leading to a satisfying finish. A cabernet lover's Merlot...and one of our best-kept secrets.
