ROCCA MERLOT, GRIGSBY VINEYARD, YOUNTVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This is a densely-fruited, youthful, Cabernet-like Merlot with a fine future. The nose is a tightly-focused array of red and black currant, red and black cherry, blueberry, violet, tobacco, peppercorn, graphite and mineral scents. Things are firm and gutsy on the palate, where notes of black fig, black tea, cedar, licorice root, baking spices and dark chocolate join the flavors suggested in the nose. The finish is gutsy, lingering, firm and bright. A worthy companion to fatty meats at this stage, it will improve dramatically in all respects if allowed another three of four years of cellar-time. 143 cases produced.
