2013 Oakville Merlot, Oakville Station Vineyard
This easy drinking, yet complex wine is loaded with bright, fresh cherry aromas with just a hint of savory dried herbs. Lifted by an abundance of juicy red fruit at its core and layers of black cherry, the toasty vanilla notes sing in harmony. The restrained use of French oak offers just enough backbone and silky tannin to suggest you give this some cellar time, if you can wait.
