The Wine Spots 2017 Merlot comes from three AVA’s in Napa Valley’s hillside vineyards, within Stag’s Leap, Rutherford and St. Helena. Each superb site lends its own signature characteristics to build this elegant Merlot. This beautiful 2017 vintage is reminiscent of the finesse and elegance of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, with soft tannins and a refined palate. Sweet cherries and plum aromas are accented by notes of vanilla on the nose, while French oak aging in small barrels emphasizes the soft tannins and fruit flavors of cherry, plum and blackberries on the palate. Hints of toasty oak come through on the long finish.
