Mt. Brave 2018 Merlot Napa Valley

Mt. Brave 2018 Merlot Napa Valley

Grown on the eastern facing slopes of Mt. Veeder, this Merlot hits all the right notes. Lush and rich, but vivaciously youthful, it is a graceful enigma. Notes of dark cherries, cedar, toasted oak and a long finish highlight this beauty.

James Suckling - 95 Points
"Aromas of spices, such as cloves, dark berries and some herbs. Full-bodied and layered with chewy tannins and a savory finish. Juicy and flavorful."

Jeb Dunnuck - 95 Points
"Pretty, exotic candied orange and floral notes emerge from the 2018 Merlot, which is medium to full-bodied and has a juicy, elegant texture, moderate, nicely integrated tannins, and just a charming, undeniably delicious style. It builds nicely with time in the glass and shows the more pure, elegant, seamless profile of the vintage yet still brings plenty of fruit. Itís ideal for enjoying over the coming decade."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94+ Points
"Made from 100% Merlot, the 2018 Merlot Mt. Veeder was aged for 22 months in oak, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notions of stewed plums, baked blackberries and sautéed herbs plus hints of beef drippings, cloves and pencil lead. Full-bodied, plush and decently generous, the finish delivers compelling black fruit layers with loads of freshness."

Wine Spectator - 93 Points
"Tightly wound, pure and minerally, this is packed with vibrant, fine-textured dried red fruit and berry flavors. Forest floor notes lingers on the direct and powerfully structured finish. "
