Hartwell 2002 Merlot (Stags Leap District)

This expressive Merlot showcases Napa's ability not only to ripen the variety but to give it pleasurable complexity, no easy task. The cherry, blackberry and cocoa flavors are replicable elsewhere, as is the oak plastering, but this wine has depth and nuance comparable to a fine Cabernet.
