Merryvale - Merlot - Napa Valley

About This Item

Overview: Wines of distinction crafted in the heart of Napa Valley. Merryvale Vineyards produces wines that are complex, balanced and represent the best of each vintage.

Our Merlot is an occasion to showcase some of the best cool climate terroirs of
Napa Valley. The fruit is drawn from the volcanic soils of Coombsville and Carneros
in southern Napa where Merlot is at its best—soft, dark, spicy and fragrant.

Tasting Notes: The wine opens with notes of raspberries, violets and spice; the fragrance is very true to the varietal with tones of blackberries and flowers. The mouth shows great freshness and soft tannins, showcasing this beautiful, cool climate Merlot with a great drinkability. The wine is incredibly soft and pretty, the beautiful acid component in it will provide great aging potential, yet it drinks very well now. It is a very gentle style of Merlot with a lot of character and drinkability—a great food wine.
