Michael Pozzan 2015 Napa Valley Merlot
The 2015 Napa Valley Merlot is a deep burgundy color in the glass, with bright red undertones. The aromas are dark and brooding - black plum, black pepper, and blackberries, with a hint of rich saddle leather. In the mouth, the wine is unctuous - soft and textured, with rich flavors of blueberries, milk chocolate, and Chinese five spice powder. Well integrated French oak frames the wine, and provides the lingering vanilla, textured finish.
