LEWIS MERLOT, NAPA VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: Just as juicy-rich as its 2016 Cab sibling, this wine opens with densely-packed aromas of purple plum cobbler, black raspberry preserves, black currant, pomegranate syrup, crushed dark rose, licorice, bitter chocolate, clove, toffee and vanilla. Flavors of sour dark cherry, pomegranate syrup, blueberry, date sugar, dried black fig, buttered toast and vanilla flesh-out the mid-palate, where they are firmed by generous tannic undercurrents. The finish is tight at opening, yet airing layers in some cherry pit and rose notes which suggest that more style is on the way. Expect three or four years of mellowing and growth.
