Merlot from Napa Valley, California

Item No. 82584
  • red wine

Winemaker's Notes

The 2001 Estate Merlot is a beautiful rich and balanced wine. In the glass, this wine exhibits a brilliant deep crimson, with a decidedly concentrated nose that radiates cassis, chocolate, and toast, complementing the complex nature of the wine.
