Buccella Merlot 2013

Buccella Merlot Napa 2013

A supremely delicious Merlot, it exhibits hedonistic flavors reminiscent of semi-sweet Chocolate walnut brownies, black cherries, and creamy vanilla while also maintaining a sense of polished finesse to age for years. With a captivating bouquet filled with black plum, cherries, and cocoa, Buccella has produced one of the most sumptuous red wines available in Napa today. The richness and cashmere-like smooth texture catapults this new release into the upper echelon of Napa reds, with its astounding density, concentration and finesse. We predict this could out-perform many $200 Cabernets in a blind tasting. Plush and deftly-constructed tannins give way to a majestic finish to enjoy now (decanting recommended) through 2021.
