Surprised it was a Merlot, full body of a cab. Good structure, well balanced. Had some staying power in the fridge. Was a little dry.
aromas of deep, lush fruit – blackberry, cherry, strawberry and cassis – with hints of earth and caramel. Juicy flavors of black fruit show generously on the palate and the complimenting blend of intense flavors and silky tannins.
Clay and I tried this in San Francisco for dinner. I had it with the prime rib and it was very good.
External Reviews for Stags' Leap Winery Merlot
A Merlot for Cabernet lovers, the 2010 Napa County Merlot is a surprise, giving everything the varietal should, plus much more. Juicy flavors of black fruit show generously on the palate and the complimenting blend of intense flavors and silky tannins show just how complex Merlot can be.
