92pointsAperture 2016 Sugarloaf Vineyard Merlot (Napa Valley)

Sanguine, earthy and meaty, this wine shows hints of dried herb, petrol and ash between dark brooding hits of plum and black cherry. Made mostly from Merlot, it has 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc blended in, adding to its soft, layered finish hinting of mocha and sage. Virginie Boone
