2018 Napa Valley Caves Merlot
The 2018 Caves Merlot has great varietal expression. Bright red fruit of pomegranate, blood orange, and red plums are dominant with lighter notes of spring flowers adding to the complexity. The palate is warm, soft, and inviting. The wine flows across the palate, carrying the aromatics and even adding hints of vanilla and Christmas spice on the long, lingering finish.
