Kenefick Ranch Merlot Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Kenefick Ranch Merlot exudes candied black cherry, fine tobacco leaf and anise through a very complex aromatic profile. The entry is bright with ripe cherry. The palate shows cassis, ripe black fruits, and fills out with well-integrated oak and gripping tannins that round off and soften on the finish. This wine can drink well now, and will also cellar longer than typical Merlots.
