2017 - PETER FRANUS - MERLOT
AVA: Napa Valley
Medium ruby in color, our 2017 Merlot offers an enticing nose of black cherry, plum, dried herb, with a hint of vanilla and just the right amount of sweet oak. The cool growing season was perfect for Merlot, resulting in a further intensification of its classic flavors and aromas. Lively, structured, elegant and complex, this is a wine that offers satisfaction at the moment but will reward many years down the road. Wonderfully palatable, this is a wine that in vites me back again and again for another taste.
