Napa Merlot by Farella Estate | 2015


A longtime Napa underdog, the Farella Estate Vineyard has been family-owned since 1977, located in the cool southeastern corner of Napa, called Coombsville. This Merlot has all the bells and whistles of a great Bordeaux with that extra layer of Napa sunshine. Plums and cherries fold-over into cocoa, tobacco, and warm stone. 30 minutes in a decanter will soften its exterior and let the terroir of Coombsville shine. Sevre between 60-64 (F) in a Bordeaux glass.
