Rombauer Merlot 2016
Aromas of fresh, ripe blueberries, ripe plum, and black currant intertwine with notes of cedar, vanilla, and pie crust. This medium-bodied wine is plush with flavors of plums, blueberries, and figs up front, leading to juicy red fruit on the mid-palate. Delicious now, its depth and structure provide long cellaring potential.

|Concentrated red currant and raspberry flavors feature minty hints in this spicy, glistening style. Flinty notes complement white pepper accents on the finish. Drink now through 2022.|

|Lots of violets and dark berries with some flowers. Medium to full body. Round and soft tannins. Very attractive merlot for current drinking. Drink now.|
