Annabella 2014 Merlot
The 2014 Annabella Napa Valley Merlot entices from the start with aromas of red plum, ripe cherries, and juicy red nectarine, with a subtle touch of vanilla and milk chocolate. In the mouth, the wine shows milk chocolate, dried cranberries, and a hint of toasted marshmallow. The wine is robust, but well balanced and with a lovely texture and creamy tannins, and the lengthy, elegant floral finish.
Enjoy this showy wine a butter roasted whole chicken served with sautéed green beans with almonds and wild rice pilaf with cranberries.
