Seavey Napa Valley Merlot 2010
Underneath the bright and lively nose of this wine you will find rose, rhubarb and cherry flavors steeped in tea rose with a hint of pepper. This Merlot has great varietal character: light but bold with a vivid, reflective, cherry color. Soft on the tongue, with fine-grained tannins and medium density, this wine will bloom in the glass over the course of several hours, opening up to the air. This wine is ideal for drinking now and over the next ten years.
