(From 2012 Vintage) The Annabella Napa Valley Merlot entices from the start with aromas of red plum, ripe cherries, and juicy red nectarine, with a subtle touch of vanilla and milk chocolate. In the mouth, the wine shows milk chocolate, dried cranberries, and a hint of toasted marshmallow. The wine is robust, but well balanced and with a lovely texture and creamy tannins, and the lengthy, elegant floral finish.
(From 2009 Vintage) This Merlot is solid with wonderful structure and depth. Smooth and focused with juicy fruit flavors. There are hints of blackberry and currant along with delicious earthy plum notes complimented by the sweet oak. It has a long lingering velvety finish.
