OG N.04 2017 Napa Valley Merlot 12-bottle case
Plum, chocolate, and black currant give way to soaring blue fruit, blackberry and graham cracker. Supple on entry with a juicy mid-palate that delivers blue fruit, blackcherry and mineral earth on a wave of silky tannins. Complex and ripe now with beautiful mouthfeel but also gobs of stuffing and 10-15 years of ageing capability. This is a gorgeous example of Napa Valley Merlot and, given its front line retail at $50-60/bottle, a stellar deal at $13/bottle equivalent.
