2018 Bella's Estate Reserve Merlot

2018 Bella’s Estate Reserve Merlot

The 2018 growing season was outstanding the Santa Clara Valley allowing for a large crop with long hang time on the vine, giving intense and complex flavors. Concentrated and crisp, fresh blueberry is the first aroma you smell, complimented by vanilla, graham cracker and toasty oak nuances. The mouthfeel is substantial, but silky at the same time with lots of dark fruit and oak flavors in the long finish.
