Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Well-structured yet elegant, the 2013 Napa Valley Merlot opens with notes of red plum, black cherry, and cranberry leading to appealing nuances of violets, dark chocolate, and pepper. On the palate, this beautifully balanced wine displays ripe red fruit, baking spice, black tea flavors ending in a smooth, long finish. This wine possesses a distinctly youthful, fresh character that makes it very approachable now. The 2013 Napa Valley Merlot pairs exceptionally well with roasted lamb chops and grilled flank steak.
