Clos du Val Merlot – Estate Merlot 2012 – Carneros Block 6 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and aromatic. It reveals notes of blackberries, cassis and strawberry associated with small notes of flowers as well as toasted oaky touches. The palate is fruity, mineral and offers an acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry) and blackberry associated with slight notes of fig, small woody notes, toasted notes as well as discreet touches of toasted coconut / caramelized sugar. Tannins are fine. Good length and persistence.
