Merryvale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark purple in color with generous aromas of currants, blackberry, licorice, chocolate, black olive, espresso and vanilla. The wine is round and full on the palate with forward fruit and great structure from the balanced acid and tannins. Decant this wine in its youth and enjoy for the next 10+ years. - See more at: http://www.merryvale.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=winedetails.displaywinetype&wineTypeID=39#sthash.OIpNCXTd.dpuf

Supple aromas of concentrated blackberry and cassis echo on the palate showing the fruit's fine Napa Valley breeding and structure. Try with roast duck and turkey or barbeque.
