Havens Wine Cellars Merlot Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2003 Napa Valley Merlot is now fruity and luscious, in a sense the most classic style for Napa Valley. This wine is destined to be a crowd-pleaser, especially if that crowd is enjoying good food. It offers very full body and varietally true red fruits, yet the tannins are round and mouthfilling, so the resulting wine on the palate is still balanced. It answers affirmatively that a rich wine can be complex, nuanced, and elegant. Info & Tasting Notes: 2004 2003 Press: 2003 Purchase: 2004 Recipes: 2

Very hot nose with black berries. Spicy and delicious. Long numbing finish that seems to go on and on. Very drinkable with a little something special extra.

The straight forward, medium-bodied, chocolatey, herbaceous, currant-scented and flavored 2003 Merlot Napa is best drunk over the next 3-4 years.
