Plumpjack Merlot Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2010 Merlot bursts from the glass with gorgeous freshness. White flowers, spices, chocolate, mocha and sweet red berries jump out from this exuberant, fleshy Merlot. At the same time, the cool, late growing season helped preserve vivacity and verve. The 2010 is 94% Merlot plus dollops of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (Dec 2012)

Dark berries, freshly cut flowers and sweet spices are some of the notes that flow from the 2010 Merlot.

Wine Tasting NotesPrimary aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry syrup and black olives are complimented by a faint hint of mint. Flavors of plums, coca, mint, cinnamon and vanilla are framed by a wonderful toast laden finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds density and backbone to allow the Merlot to age gracefully for the next 4-6 years.
