2016 Trefethen Family Vineyards Merlot, Oak Knoll District, USA
Thick and leathery in black fruit, this perennial classic from the region has a depth of flavor and texture that is structured and full of grace. Blended with 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec, it shows toasty oak, clove and integrated tannins that soften in the glass.

At once very ripe and lively with very attractive cherries and supple tannins that neatly fill out the full body, the finish smooth and long. Drink or hold.
