Freemark Abbey 1997 Merlot (Napa Valley)

Starts off with berry, tobacco, cassis, and spice aromas, along with a eucalyptus, menthol note. Balanced and elegant. The fruit is kept tightly wrapped, while the tannins are soft and silky, but complex. A deft, polished wine—not a blockbuster but defines good winemaking.
