2006 Los Carneros Merlot
Lot 122 2006 Los Carneros Merlot
Deep eggplant purple with a nose that exhibits assertive aromas of dark cherries, chocolate underpinned with darker notes of coffee, tobacco, and cedar. The flavors of this wine echo the ripe fruit of the nose with added nuances of spice box, smoke, and toasty oak, all melting into a finish of bittersweet chocolate. These rich tones are wrapped together with a velvety mouthfeel and chewy tannins, displaying the prestige of these southern Napa Merlots. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 6 years.
Style: Full, Bold
