Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot 2018
- Napa Valley
The 2018 Napa Cellars Merlot boasts aromas of dark fruit, rich black cherry, blackberry, red plum and notes of graphite, violets, toffee and spice on the nose. Flavors of dark berries with black cherry, dark chocolate, brown sugar and caramel are complemented by notes of vanilla, smoky tobacco and soft leather. This approachable wine showcases a medium to full-bodied palate with well-structured tannin and balanced acidity through a long finish. - Winemaker's Notes
