The dense garnet color follows through to the rim. The nose is warm and dusty with red rose, black cherry, and tobacco aromas. The mouth offers warm cloves that elevate the fruit flavors in this full-bodied wine.Blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in small oak cooperage, this gorgeous Merlot displays the consistency of fruit source and winemaking from its Monticello Road vineyard.
Notes from the Hagefen Merlot 2014. The Hagafen Merlot from the Napa Valley in California has a ruby garnet color that is deep in the middle and brighter at the rim. This is a young wine with lots of wood and fruit on the nose. This wine has lots of dill and vanilla and the fruit goes between raspberries and blackberries. This is a big wine, woody and acidic in the mouth. The wine has big and bold flavors. It's best served at room temperature.
