2002 Napa Valley Merlot

by David on November 9, 2004

This full, complex wine blossoms in ripe berry, plum, and cherry on the nose, and boasts a beautiful array of soft spicy oak, bold berry and jammy strawberry flavors, with a hint of clove and a generous mouth-feel. Lingering flavors of oak and berry, highlighted by medium tannins, finish the palate on an elegant frame.

Food Suggestions
Our winemaker suggests pairing this limited release Napa Valley Merlot with grilled steak, short ribs, beef brisket, rack of lamb, roast pork, and grilled pork tenderloin. It will also pair well with Lasagna, penne & sausage, and ravioli. Complements Turkey with rich or heavy sauces. Oh heck… anyone ready for a hamburger and glass of Merlot?
