Region: Oakville, Napa Valley, California
In a rare treat we have found this stunning bottle of the often shunned varietal, Merlot. Don’t rely on Sideways to change your view on this thick skinned grape, cause she can take the California heat! Plush and silky tannins encompass this velvety smooth lightly oaked wine that brims notes of cacao, dark berries and hints of cassis. Pair with a good steak or just a good friend, this wine can be consumed alone or with food.
