Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Napa Cellars Merlot boasts lifted aromas of toasty baking spices, vanilla, malt and fresh, ripe plums. The full-bodied wine has flavors of warm mixed berry compote with juicy blueberry, blackberry and cherry notes. Plush on the palate with a well balanced structure this Merlot has firm tannins and a long finish with hints of dark chocolate and toffee that linger.
