Wine Review: 2012 Napa Cellars Merlot Napa Valley
The fine folks at Trinchero have good intentions with this tasty Merlot producing a quality wine at a value price point with this respectable libation.
They have certainly expanded their offerings beyond the range produced under their Sutter Home label.
Swirl the glass and you will smell sweet red fruit, vanilla and cocoa. Plums, cherries and mocha represent the core flavor components. This wine has wide distribution and appears on wine lists everywhere which makes it easy to say Merlot me with a Napa Cellars wine. This Merlot pairs beautifully with a lot of different cuisines and will also work as a stand-alone sipper in cocktail situations.
Rating: Very Good (87) | $24 | 14.1 % ABV
