Description

Details

WE 93 JS 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection! - From one of the best-known sites for the variety in the Napa Valley, this wine shows classic Merlot-structure, with an almost dusty quality to the well-integrated and resolved tannins. It discloses a density of red fruit that remains in balance with its more rugged minerality, remaining soft on the palate throughout. Drink now through 2025.

According to James Suckling - Lots of cherry and dried strawberry aromas with hints of chocolate. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Clean and very delectable. Drink now.

Winemakers Notes - This is a classic expression of Three Palms Vineyard, with vibrant red fruit bursting through on the entry, followed by layers of licorice, wet stone and earth that reveal themselves on the mid-palate. Though the tannins are prominent, adding gravitas to this iconic Merlot, there is a lovely refinement to them that beautifully accentuates the flavors of blueberry, warm spice cake and Santa Rosa plum. 89% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot. 14.5% ABV.

Velvety wax finish.
This is a top notch merlot. Brother-in-law shared at a night out for dinner. Densely concentrated red licorice and blue berry, with hints of mineral and a waxy smooth velvety finish. One of the best Merlots I've ever enjoyed.
