2018 Grgich Hills Merlot Napa Valley

$42.95 $44.95

This robust Merlot will delight Cabernet Sauvignon lovers! On the nose, this Merlot offers layers of fruit – blueberry, raspberry and cherry. The palate is elegantly structured with mouth-watering tannins and sprightly, well-balanced acidity. The fruit-forward berries on the nose reemerge on the palate with savory undertones of basil and rosemary. This harmonious wine displays a lasting and memorable finish. Pair it with grilled flank steak, lamb burgers or veal chops.

Wine Enthusiast

This wine is concentrated and moderately complex, with earthy notes of coffee bean, dill and black pepper. The fruit is a contrasting mix of black currant and black cherry, with refined tannins and integrated oak that leaves a trace of baking spice.
