A perennial favorite of many in the Valley! Our 2005 Napa Valley Estate Bottled Merlot, from the Freethy-Monticello Vineyard in the Eastern foothills, is highly aromatic, showing dusty rose petal, cherry licorice, cinnamon, and cloves. Deep ruby-garnet in color, and a classic Californian “Right Bank” wine, this mouth-watering and long-finishing Merlot presents notes of black cherry, black licorice, roasted cocoa, and pumpkin pie spices, accented by silky tannins. It is a perfect accompaniment to most chicken, soups and bisques, and veal.
