Merlot from Heidi Barrett's own winery. This is a serious Merlot with an artistic label changing each year. Love the fruit and tannin chain on this one. So light with some serious flavors of cherry and raspberry and cedar wood. Will age for some time. Bring it on. #pnv15

The artwork is ALMOST as beautiful as the wine. Smooth rounded tannins, big and bold full flavor

Good nose. Bright fruit with a hint of mint on the palate. Excellent.
