2015 Merryvale Oakville Grade Red Wine
This is an incredible wine from an incredible vineyard—a unique blend for Napa coming from one of the best vineyards in the valley.The nose opens up with roasted coffee notes and licorice. As it evolves the wine broadens into black currant, plum and balsamic tones typical of Cabernet Franc; a little bit of violet flowers are also present in the background. On the palate the entry is pretty broad and soft with an interesting touch of sweetness and acidity that keeps the wine very reactive. It is a long wine that finishes on dark chocolate notes and a very savory tannin texture. With proper cellaring, this wine will drink beautifully for up to 20 years or more.
43% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
