2014 Oakville Merlot, Oakville Station Vineyard
A beautiful expression of what Napa Valley Merlot always knew it could be. Picked at peak ripeness in a lovely vintage, this is a dark and concentrated wine. Aromas of fresh-picked late summer blackberries intermingle with a touch of dried herb. Soft and lush on entry, the dense fruit core explodes with juicy flavors and velvety texture. Balanced acidity and integrated tannins linger on the finish.
