St. Clement Merlot 2009
Merlot from Napa Valley, California
Sold Out 29.99
Aromas of strawberry, cranberry, and raspberry jam with underlying hints of dark chocolate, vanilla cream soda, nutmeg, and cassis. On the palate are flavors of chocolate covered espresso beans, brown spices, and blackberries. The moutheel is round, but finishes with a solid structure and tannin. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 19 months to give it a supple texture and ample weight to stand on its own or enjoy with food.
Blend: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet
