Cakebread Cellars Merlot Napa Valley bottle shot

Merlot

Napa Valley

Fragrant ripe black cherry, red plum and blackberry aromas, complemented by whiffs of black tea, oak and chocolate, introduce this bold, beautifully structured merlot. Rich and plump on the palate with lush cherry, plum and red currant flavors framed by firm, yet fine-grained tannins, it culminates in a long finish accented by zesty tea-leaf spice tones. Delicious now, this youthful merlot will benefit from another 5-7 years’ aging.

A wine with gusto, black cherry, spice-oak, plum, and rich mocha. *note from publisher Richard Elia: . . . if you’re tasting the 2013 vintage, you’re tasting some of the best Merlot to come out of Napa and Sonoma in years, and that with its moderate tannins will keep for several years.
