The nose is charred fruit. Fruit forward on the palate with lots of cherry, plum, strawberry, and blackberry. The body is heavy, reflective of the nearly 15% alcohol. The finish is chewy with medium acid and a smokey fruit aftertaste.

Slightly monolithic, red fruit, mild tannins, oak.

Yummy! Much better than the '15, but that's probably because this had time to mellow. Had the '15 straight from the barrel.

Too olivey and smokey. Not enough bramble but still good.

Thoroughly enjoyed this Merlot! 80% merlot 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, blackberry, plum, cherry, oak, and cedar. On the palette, medium plus tannins, cherry, plum, leather, and a tobacco smoke finish. A steak wine for sure! #youhadmeatmerlot #napavalleywines #winelife #vsattui

I couldn't find the Napa Valley Merlot, but we enjoyed it as neither my husband nor I are big Merlot drinkers.

For some reason, this is saying its a Cab Sav when it's clearly a Merlot. Either way, a FANTASTIC wine. Low tannins, blackberry jam, oaky. A great bottle.
