2010 Merlot, Napa Valley


Cakebread Merlot, Napa Valley

About This Wine

The ripe, earthy, black cherry, dark plum and blackcurrant aromas of our 2010 Napa Valley Merlot introduce a palate full of rich plum, pomegranate and dark cherry flavors that take on a spicy tone in the wine’s long, fruitful finish. Boasting vibrant, concentrated flavors, fine tannins and good balancing acidity, this beautifully structured red wine is alluring now, but will develop even greater richness and complexity with another 2-3 years of bottle age.

Blending fruit from different microclimates and soil types allows us to craft a rich, ripe Napa Merlot with bright, vibrant flavors, well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity.
