2007 Napa Valley Merlot
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points and Best Buy.
Deep ruby/purple with a matching rim. With bright fruit, layers of complexity, and charming tannins, this is a wine of texture, engaging the sense of depth on the palate. It shows a nose of fudge, espresso roast, sweet oak, and plenty of plums and currant fruit. In the choice between immediacy and complexity, this wine pleasingly leans slightly toward complexity. Fine-grained tannins and very well-integrated acids focus this wine, providing a great opportunity for aging.
Style: Full, Bold
