Merryvale Profile Napa Valley 2018

$210

Another example of how good '18 is, this brims with cassis, dark plum and blackberry fruit but stays reserved overall, while subtle loam, cedar and iron notes keep it grounded. The long, well-defined finish has cut and drive. Should cruise in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2038. 1,117 cases made.
