Drinking Now: 2012 Cornerstone Oakville Station Napa Merlot

Color: Dark garnet color

Nose: Spice, tobacco, dark berries, touch of ripe strawberry at the end

Palate: Cedar, plum and that whisper of fresh strawberry making this smooth deep wine finish on a lighter note.

Medium acidity, easy drinking, smooth and balanced.

Alcohol:14.5%

This is Cornerstone’s first release under their new Napa Valley single vineyard program. Made from one of their Oakville Station Vineyard blocks in To Kalon. This 100% Merlot is complex and smooth yet the acidity shines though Velvety and opulent it still remains light on its feet as there is more than ample acidity to carry the amazing depth and power of this wine. While generous, this full-bodied Merlot is still a wine for the cellar and will reward five or more years of patience with a truly stunning wine. Just 97 cases were produced.
