Nickel & Nickel Merlot Napa Valley Suscol Ranch 2004
Notes on the Nickel & Nickel Merlot Harris Vineyard Oakville 2004 : WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2004 Harris Merlot is a very stylish expression of classic Oakville Merlot. The flavor profile continues to be of rich, berry fruit layered with dried herbs of bay leaf and sage that combine with notes of earth, cigar and spice. The contribution from the oak of sweet vanillin, cedar and smoke integrate with the fruit, rounding out the middle palate. The firm, yet supple, tannins add length on the finish, which is elegant and characteristic of this wine. NICKEL & NICKEL MERLOT HARRIS VINEYARD OAKVILLE 2004
