2020 Destin Estate Merlot
Destin Vineyard, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
The 2020 Destin Estate Merlot defines the essence of what makes Merlot such a great varietal. This wine is opulent yet lively with an alluring balance leaving you wanting more. On the nose, you are greeted with explosive aromas of cola, tyme, floral notes, and an abundance of dark cherry that is also expressed on the palate. Lighter red fruits accompanied by hints of clove, plum, black pepper, and baking spices enrich your tastebuds. The medium-plus to full body is voluptuous with sweet oak and silky tannins allowing for a long, lingering rich finish.
