The Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Merlot red wine represents the Napa Valleys natural ability to perfect Bordeaux varieties. The vineyards range from deep gravelly valley floor to high elevation mountainous volcanic soils. The depth of fruit coupled with the richness of flavor provides a profile that delivers from the initial sip. Aromas and flavors of cherries, wild strawberry and blueberry cobbler jump from this glass of this ruby-colored red wine. The spicy oak is well integrated with smooth flavors of baking spice, leather and plum. Pair with camembert and parmesan cheeses, pasta with bolognese sauce, beef bourguignon. This bottled California merlot is 14.5% alcohol by volume.
