Alexander Valley Vineyards - Merlot 2019
Alexander Valley Vineyards Description
This wine impresses red wine lovers immediately with spicy aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum, vanilla, oak, and slight chocolate in the glass. This Merlot is full bodied with big flavors of blackberry, plum, cassis, and juicy red cherry. The layered flavors are well balanced with a long, textured finish.
James Suckling: 92 Points
Fruity nose with lots of plums, cherry cake and some mint chocolate. Medium-bodied with juicy and crunchy plums, cherries, and a hint of vanilla on the palate, leading to a pretty long, fruity finish with some mocha and tobacco in the end. Nicely firm and tight. Typical merlot fruit and brightness showing good drinkability.
