2019 Destin Estate Merlot
Destin Vineyard, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
The second debut of Destin Estate Merlot is a more lifted, spicy, plum and dark cherry filled wine that is medium to full-bodied and bursting with fruit.
This gorgeous Estate Merlot opens with harmonious, seductive aromas, floral violets, exotic spices, mingled delicately with rich, melting dark chocolate. Generous piquancy of crushed berry, dark cherry, plum, mocha and allusion of white pepper and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, this wine is well structured with rich fruit on the palate. The pleasing lingering finish is structured with encouraging acidity and a perfect restrained minerality that enhances the wine's drinking experience.
