Cuvaison 1997 Merlot (Napa Valley)

A handsome wine with dark berry, plum, cocoa and cedary oak aromas on the nose. Very good sense of balance and mouthfeel, playing the prune and berry fruit flavors against good acidity and tannins. Full but not sharp tannins on the long finish. Opulent, and will continue to improve over 1 or 2 years.
