Staying true to it’s warm-climate roots, Gibbs 2015 Napa Valley Merlot offers heaps of ripe red fruits and warm spice on the nose. Fresh plucked raspberry, juicy red plum, and fresh cranberry are layered over French oak, subtle cedar tones, and a hint of white pepper. Fresh acidity brings balance to the fruit filled body, while fine tannins make for a silky-smooth medium length finish. We crafted this Merlot to put any doubt about varietal integrity to rest and show that Merlot can be just as complex and rewarding a wine as any.
