The 2018 Flanagan Merlot Bennett Valley has compelling aromatic notes of Bay Leaf, Pepper, Cedar, and Saffron. The palate has Red Currant, Black Cherry, Bergomot, and Black Tea with a very elegant tannin structure. The acidity provides great balance. The small berries produced from the steep, volcanic hillside site give the wine great color and concentration. This is an elegant, age worthy, world class Merlot.
The 2018 Herson Family Vineyards Access Merlot is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga. It’s aged 18 months in French Oak barrels, 30% new oak. It has a dense purple color and reveals notes of cocoa, chocolate, Asian plum sauce and black cherries. It is a sensual, layered and full-bodied wine that is balanced, complex, distinctive, and connected to its Napa Valley terroir. The wine will age well for a decade or more. No technological gimmicks were used making this wine. It was crafted by one of Napa Valley’s iconic winemakers who puts his trust in his instinct and palate when crafting wines that are among Napa Valley’s finest.
