2011 Winemaker Series Lot 1 Merlot
This medium-bodied Napa Valley Merlot is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. The 2011 Winemaker Series Lot #1 opens with notes of blueberries, raspberries and violets with hints of baking spices. On the palate the wine has a very elegant texture with fine-grained tannins and a nice core of berries and red fruit.
