Vintage 2014
Wine Type Red
Varietal Merlot
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Trevor Durling
With impeccable balance and concentration from the 2014 vintage, this Napa Valley Merlot opens with deep aromas of ripe cherry layered with crushed black pepper, licorice and an alluring nuance of purple iris. Hints of mocha and hazelnut from oak aging meld with the varietal and terroir expression. The wine’s focused entry turns to a beam of saturated, dark fruit flavors that fan out across the plush, voluminous palate. Mouthwatering acidity gives length to the flavors and a lift on the finish, while supple tannins frame this generous Merlot and give it cellar worthiness.
