Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot 2017
- Napa Valley
This is an explosive offering of succulent black cherry and cola that finds balance and backbone on the structured midpalate. It finishes with hints of clove, cedar and toasted oak that linger. - WE91, Virginie Boone
The 2017 Napa Cellars Merlot boasts aromas of plum and black cherry, sweet espresso, rose petal, dried herbs and bergamot on the nose. Flavors of dark berry flavors with treacle, tobacco, vanilla and toasted caramel notes dance on the juicy palate. This balanced wine showcases medium body and long, drying tannins. The wine finishes with a cedar character and showcases medium body, soft structure, good length and bright fruit that pairs well with a wide range of food. -Winemaker's Notes
