2014 Merlot Napa Valley

Darjean Jones 2014 Merlot hails from a single vineyard located on the eastern ridge of Napa Valley at the base of Atlas Peak. This deep garnet colored wine is intense with mouth-filling blackberry and boysenberry overtones. Its fruit forward flavors and refined spices give this vintage a liveliness from start to velvety finish. Well-developed structure and integrated tannins will allow this unique wine room to age, yet the subtle traces of earthiness and immediate approachability make this unique wine share-worthy now.
