With freshness emphasizing its southern Napa origins, the 2017 Merlot shows tons of juicy black cherry and dark plum fruit alongside sarsaparilla notes of vanilla, caramel and allspice, giving a rich warmth to the nose. Savory, sweet herbal elements, (almost Jägermeister-like), of cherry kirsch, bittersweet chocolate, black licorice, cola and chaparral floral blossom, thyme, mint and rosemary, also sit alongside sweet baking spice notes, imparted from the oak ageing. The palate is fleshy, rich and full, with mouthwatering fruit flavors, polished structure, refreshing acidity, and soft, fine-grained, velvety tannins, leading to a lengthy silky finish, exhibiting a well-balanced wine that shows the true elegance of Merlot
