Napa Valley, California
This 2015 Napa Valley Merlot is deep dark in color with a creamy texture and firm long tannins. Intense aromas of cassis, coffee and dusty rose petals give way to underlying flavors of wild cherries, blueberries and hints of olive tapenade. On the palate, this full-bodied wine
provides amazing balance and a harmony of flavors.
