Provenance Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot 2014

SKU 018138567029


This Napa Valley Merlot opens with deep aromas of ripe cherry layered with crushed black pepper, licorice and an alluring nuance of purple iris. Hints of mocha and hazelnut from oak aging meld with the varietal and terroir expression. The wine's focused entry turns to a beam of saturated, dark fruit flavors that fan out across the plush, voluminous palate. Mouthwatering acidity gives length to the flavors and a lift on the finish, while supple tannins frame this generous Merlot and give it cellar worthiness.

Wine EnthusiastBlack olive marks the opening of this soft, spicy and ripe wine, well integrated in its marriage of fruit, acidity and oak. Full bodied, it holds its ripeness well, showing a lasting balance of clove and dark chocolate on the finish.
