When first opened this was lush and sexy. With time the aromas became faded and the structure fell out of balance. Holding up well with dark plum, chocolate, and herb notes. Med complexity and med length. #paradigm #merlot #napavalley #oakville #california #usa #ctbucklinwine

A very delicious #Oakville #Merlot. Bright and well structured with supple red fruit and delicate spice.
