The benchmark Merlot for Napa Valley. Seamless and packed full of dense black cherry, plum, milk chocolate, wild strawberry, and toasted almond. Firmer than most Merlots, you will revel in the 2017 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot’s velvety mountain tannins.
Containing 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Merlot offers up pronounced notes of plum preserves, baked blackberries and black forest cake with suggestions of baking spices, licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, rich and velvety textured, the palate is laden with dark fruit and spice layers, beautifully defined by a refreshing line, finishing with great persistence. 4,404 cases produced.
