Provenance Vineyards 2015 Napa Valley Merlot
Silky and elegant, this Napa Valley Merlot gracefully reveals its fruit-driven character of ripe cherry and blackberry compote. Hints of dark chocolate and hazelnut meld with a savory edge of pipe tobacco and bay leaf. The well-knit acidity enlivens the mouth-filling flavors, while supple tannins frame the wine and give age worthiness. Complex baking spice nuances weave through this Merlot's generous varietal expression.
