2015 Napa Valley
Winery Price $50
Our Price $19.99
The Lava Vine wines have previously never been distributed. You could only find them at the winery or being a winery club member. The winery and vineyard was sold two years ago and purchased by Rudy Von Strasser so its safe to assume there are changes coming and an inventory reduction is going to help things move forward. As a result you are the beneficiary.
This is a complex, age worthy Merlot. Flavors of dark cherry, cassis, mocha and subtle vanilla notes on the long, smooth finish. If we were going to compare this with another Napa Valley Merlot producer we would say Duckhorn is the closest thing stylistically. In other words not a big fruit bomb but a wine with elegance that will age gracefully and is a good food wine. Great with chicken in a mushroom sauce, grilled filet mignon, or a roasted pork loin.
Upper echelon Merlot for under $20! Killer deal!
See you soon!
