Our Napa Valley Merlot immediately captures attention with its perfumed black cherry, red plum and blackberry aromas, which are nicely complemented by hints of mineral and dried herbs. Boasting considerable depth and concentration on the palate, the wine offers rich, vibrant, dark cherry and plum flavors, with notes of sage, tea-leaf spice and a flinty minerality adding zest to the long, cherry-laced finish. Immensely appealing now, this fragrant, delicious merlot will profit from another 5-7 years’ aging.

It is hard to find fault with a wine such as Cakebread Cellars’ 2012 Merlot. This gorgeous effort represents everything this grape can produce. It exhibits a dense purple color, lots of sweet black cherry and mocha-infused fruit, and caresses the palate with an opulence and richness that are hard to resist. The wine’s beautiful purity, stunning texture, and overall ripeness and sexiness are what Merlot is all about. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, it can be drunk now and over the next 7-8 years. Bravo!

This opaque and midnight blue colored Merlot from Napa opens with an oak and blackberry bouquet with hints of pipe tobacco. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black raspberry jam with black plum, black pepper, coffee, and spice. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a long time. The panel suggested pairing this tasty Merlot with a Kona coffee encrusted filet mignon or with chunks of rich dark chocolate.
