Chappellet Vineyard Merlot 2010

Chappellet Vineyard Merlot 750ml 2010    
Sku: 1798870*

Tasting notes
The result is a lush full-bodied wine with deep ruby color. Its bright, concentrated bouquet of plum and black cherry opens to ripe fruit and berry jam. The French oak is sweet on the nose with vanilla, nutmeg, and underlying hints of dried herb. The aromas continue as well-integrated flavors with the addition of firm, sweet tannins and spicy oak. A lush, round mouthfeel leads to a long, complex and satisfying finish. Drink now through 2008.
