Château Souverain Merlot 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 87% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon Deep ruby in color, this concentrated Alexander Valley Merlot offers classic aromas of ripe black plum, blueberry and currant. The core of vibrant fruit balances nicely with the soft, round tannins creating a lush and juicy mouthfeel. Notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, which come from aging in oak barrels, meld nicely with the rich fruit and lead to a long, velvety finish.

Rich and spicy, with exotic chocolate, black cherry, plum, nutmeg and light toasty, mocha-scented oak and coffee grounds. Elegant, complex and concentrated, it's a mouthful of Merlot that should age well for another decade. Firm, chewy tannins sneak up on you. Best from 2003 through 2012.
