2013 Alexander Valley Merlot

Dark purple with hints of rouge, this 2013 Alexander Valley Merlot has a plum nose mixed with currant, blueberry, and bing cherry. Velvety tannins pair exceptionally well with the dark fruit, resulting in a rich, lingering finish. Small doses of Cabernet Franc and Malbec was added for complexity. The result is a wine that drinks well at the moment and can appreciate further ageing.
