Pedroncelli Bench Vineyards Merlot 2017
Aromas are rich and enticing with hints of strawberry, sage, and baking spices. Flavors of red cherry, plum, and notes of freshly ground black pepper are showcased along with a touch of vanilla and toasty oak. Medium-bodied with rounded tannins follow through to a spiced finish. A beautifully balanced wine.
Well-structured, with a firm backbone of acidity to the dried dark currant, dark cherry and dried berry flavors. Cedary accents show mid palate, featuring notes of graphite and slate on the tannic finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made.
