Beringer – Merlot 2014, Brancroft Ranch Vineyard – Howell Mountain, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, concentrated and offers power. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and liquorice associated with touches of blueberry and very discreet hints of spices, Zan and tobacco. The palate is fruity, welll-balanced, tense and offers a good definition, a slight acid frame, concentration, power, a slight suavity, a very slight freshness, a fine grain as well as a very slightly grainy sensation. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry and cassis associated with touches of Zan, tobacco, cardamom, small touches of cinnamon as well as very discreet oaky hints and dark chocolate. Tannins are a bit grainy. Good length.
