Joseph Carr Merlot Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

I always take a classic Bordeaux style approach tomy Napa ValleyMerlot, employingMerlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon in the final cuvee. It’s all part of a mission to produce complex yet balanced wines that echo a European sensibility and exhibit approachability upon release.

    Elegant, stylish, with depth and balance, this wine offers a bouquet of ripe plum, cassis, sageand subtle cedar. Its flavors are highlighted by wild berry, ripe cherry and a hint of olive andspice. Structurally sound, yet very approachable
