Peju Merlot 2018
|California, Napa Valley
This complex and multi-layered wine greets the nose with hints of dark fruit and anise. Bright flavors follow that include dried cherries, raspberries, white pepper and savory notes. The well-defined tannins add texture and length to the finish and will ensure a long life in the cellar.
The 2018 Merlot is less successful, with moderately intense red and black fruits and some chunky oak.
