Franciscan Estate Merlot 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Appearance: Deep scarlet. Aromas: Blackberry and ripe cherry liquor lend a dark fruit aroma to this wine, followed by more complex layers of cedar, black pepper, and freshly cut hay. Mouth Feel: The palate has finely knit tannins with notes of black cherry and sweet herbs along with dark cocoa on the long finish. This wine is beautifully balanced with good structure.
