ORIGIN: US: California
PRODUCT: Trefethen Merlot
Because Merlot flourishes in relatively cool growing regions with moist soils, it's extremely well-suited to the ancient alluvial loams, temperate climate, and long growing season of Trefethen's estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, a sweet spot between Napa's warmer up-valley regions and its cool southern tip.
Trefethen's Merlot bounds from the glass with a potpourri of ripe black cherry, plum compote, smoked meat, dried tomato, black olive, black tea and sweet vanilla aromas that preface a lush, round, lengthy palate of concentrated dark cherry, plum, cassis and pie spice flavors.
Rich and complex, this is a Merlot to ponder and savor.
