Region: Coombsville AVA - Napa Valley
In Brief: A beautiful wine with a long way to go. Right now you'll get Merlot with a tight grip that's nearly overwhelmed by its stunning acidity. Milk chocolate and crunchy leaves on the nose and a palate full of barely ripe red plum and dark chocolate shavings. If you need to open it, give it some air. But if you have the patience, a decade will serve this bottle well.
