2010 Merlot

$31

By: Nichelini Family Winery

In: Napa Valley, CA

750mL / 14.8% ABV

Buy this wine and drink it with a great cut of beef - this wine shows why Merlot doesn't deserve the bad rap it has gotten in recent years

Experience

A full bodied, well balanced Merlot from Nichelini. Good amounts of tannin, oak, and fruit that work very well together - this is delicious on its own right now, will be great with a couple years of age, and would be awesome with a ribeye.
