Bennett Valley’s coastal influence, with its warm days and cool nights, is a perfect place to grow Merlot, and this Merlot is perfection. Layered aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate and raspberry preserves develop into chocolate-covered cherries on the palate. Beautifully balanced with a long finish. Name something better than chocolate-covered cherries. We’ll wait.
