Winemaker Notes - Merlot increased softness on the mid-palate while Malbec added texture and additional layers of ripe flavors to the wine. Napa Valley - (Half Bottle). The wine offers pleasing flavors and aromas of berry, currant, cherry, and sweet oak. It has great weight in the mid-palate with rich fruit and round tannins. It is enjoyable now and will continue evolving through 2023.
