Freemark Abbey Merlot 2009, Napa Valley

 80% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot & 1% Syrah

In the glass deep ruby red. Semi opaque.
On the nose oak, layers of dark fruit and berries. Baking spices.
On the palate dry, medium bodied, very soft and pleasant. Elegant tannins, flavors of vanilla, black cherry, mulberry and hint of chocolate.
Long and pleasant finish.
Beautiful wine can be enjoyed now or in a few years. Needs decanting.
