Dark cranberries and dried cherries burst out of this wine aromatically, coupled with cocoa dust, fresh strawberry jam, cherry cola, pomegranate, and toasted vanilla. On the palate, this Merlot has fine, firm tannins alongside black cherries, red currants, goji berries, and toasted walnuts. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish. Enjoy right now and through 2023 with proper cellaring.

Hearty red-fruit and graham cracker richness mark this well-made wine, blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. A generous tannin structure provides a framework for the ripe weight as the finish explores aspects of sweet tobacco.

This stretches out nicely, with notes of sandalwood and Asian spice to the crushed red fruit flavors. Chocolate and cream details show on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 8,425 cases made.

Blended of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Merlot Napa has a smudged nose of stewed plums, bay leaves and earth. The medium-bodied palate is verging on the lean side with rustic tannins and an uncomplicated finish.
