SEAVEY Merlot, Napa Valley 2016

The 2016 Seavey Merlot is a sensational release that has a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon blended in (5%) as was aged for twenty months in 30% new French oak prior to bottling. Showing off its deep core, this opens with freshly roasted espresso bean with a dusting of cocoa powder and shades of red bell pepper that all enter the fray aromatically. The palate is plush with a wonderful silky texture that entices. Flavors of black forest cake and shades of Turkish coffee mingle with the bright combination of red and dark fruits. The mineral backbone and weight of the wine suggest this will cellar well for decades.
