2012 Burgess Cellars Merlot

Estate: Burgess Cellars
Region: Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley, California, United States of America
Vineyard: Triere Vineyard


Tasting Note:January 20, 2016

Deep red with violet hues. Complex nose that started with lots of earthy and woody notes. Such as tobacco leaves, wet barrels, dirt, acorns, and a cigar box. Additionally had some red cherry undertones. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Slightly savory with lots of red and black cherries that add a refreshing acidity to the long lingering finish. Great body and could easily last for another five years.
