Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot boasts aromas of black currant, raspberry and hints of thyme herbs on the nose. Subtle notes of tea leaf and cola lead to remarkable, opulent flavors of ripe plum, cherry, mushroom and white pepper on the palate. This wine showcases balanced acidity, which frames the full-bodied and round tannins, and extending through the finish. For a decadent meal, pair the 2013 Napa Cellars Napa Valley Merlot with roasted duck or honey-barbequed chicken with a side of ricotta risotto.
Vineyard Notes
Grapes for the 2013 Napa Cellars Merlot are sourced from vineyards throughout Napa Valley to include Oak Knoll, Atlas Peak and St. Helena, regions ideal for cultivating Merlot grapes. The moderate to cool climate in Napa Valley supports an extended growing season, resulting in elegant, intricate, complex and balanced wine.
Winemaker Notes
Once harvested, the grapes undergo a 9- to- 15- day maceration period and are fermented using the Délestage method. This process allows the winemaker to extract copious amounts of color and flavor from the skins, while avoiding excessive extraction of bitter and astringent flavors. After the fermentation process is complete, the wine is aged for 20 months in 99% French Oak barrels and 1% American Oak.
