Cakebread Merlot 2012
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Our 2012 Merlot displays ripe black cherry and plum compote aromas complemented by enticing tea-leaf, toasted vanilla and woodsy scents. Plush, rich and juicy on the palate, its densely concentrated black cherry, dark plum and pomegranate flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins and a long, sumptuous finish graced by savory spice and mocha tones. An irresistibly lush Merlot of great depth, length and suppleness, it drinks deliciously now, yet will develop further complexity with another 2-3 years of bottle age.
Wine SpectatorSolidly built and well-focused, with accents of currant, cedar and tomato leaf. The tannins slowly build on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases made.
