Plumpjack 2014 Napa Valley Merlot
Winemaker's Notes -The impeccable 2014 vintage blessed this wine with aromas of raspberry, black cherry, and white flowers, with dashes of mint and earth in the background. The barrels sprinkle in some subtle spice, smoke, and vanilla flavors helping round out the bouquet. The palate is silky upon entry and ascends to a full-bodied and rich midpalate. The bright acid and beautiful structure give this wine great tension, balance, and persistence on the finish. The cherry and raspberry flavors stand out on the palate and the wine finishes with cocoa and vanilla.
