TASTING NOTES

Fragrant aromas of cherry, cassis and mocha immediately please the nose and intermingle effortlessly with raspberry and cranberry notes. Bold flavors of boysenberry, black pepper and rich chocolate fill out the palate and are complimented by silky tannins a long finish. The 2009 Reserve Selection Napa Valley Merlot is a versatile wine that will pair well with a variety of dishes. Try it with a marinated pork tenderloin or smoked salmon with a wild rice pilaf. Delicious at an early age, this wine will benefit from additional cellaring of 5-7 years past the vintage date.
