The 2016 Flanagan Bennett Valley Merlot has beautiful aromatic notes of bergamot, black raspberry, and bay leaf. The palate has ripe red currants and black plum with lots of structure. The acidity provides beautiful delineation and tension in the mouth. The small berries produced from the steep, volcanic hillside site gives the wine great color and concentration. This is a generous, age worthy, world-class Merlot.
