Napa Cellars Merlot 2013

Region: California

Winemaker's Description: The 2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot boasts aromas of black currant, raspberry and hints of thyme herbs on the nose. Subtle notes of tea leaf and cola lead to remarkable, opulent flavors of ripe plum, cherry, mushroom and white pepper on the palate. This wine showcases balanced acidity, which frames the full-bodied and round tannins, and extending through the finish.

For a decadent meal, pair the 2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot with roasted duck or honey-barbequed chicken with a side of ricotta risotto
