Annabella Merlot Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

" This generous Napa Valley Merlot is medium plum colored with brick edges and has aromas of sweet black cherry, coffee and subtle black olive notes. The palate is loaded with ripe cranberry and boysenberry fruit flavors backed with soft tannins from extensive aging in medium toast French oak barrels. The finish is long with a silky texture allowing the cherry-boysenberry notes to linger. Aged in French oak for 18 months, this wine will continue to develop through 2020. This wine pairs well with pot roast and mashed potatoes, or served with whitefish served with sautéed snap peas and roasted fingerling potatoes. " -Winery

This is a big, ripe Merlot with overtones of black cherry, plum fruit and a little dusty currant. Substantial but supple. Medium tannins allow this wine to drink well over the next 3 to 4 years.
