La Storia Merlot Alexander Valley 750mL

This is a fine example of this classic Bordeaux variety to make solid, tasty and age-worthy wines. The aromas and flavors are of dark cherries, plums, a bit of black licorice and herbs. New oak contributes a touch of vanilla, cocoa dust and slight toast. On the mouth the wine is almost heavy but the acidity and tannins are balanced for a young wine.
