Sullivan Family Vineyards - 2013 Merlot

Sullivan Family Vineyards - 2013 Merlot

 Vintage2013

Varietal : Merlot

Appellation : Napa Valley

Harvest Date : 09/04/13

Alcohol :  14.8%

The aroma of this wine is of black cherry, marrionberry, violet, molasses, tamerand, tomato paste, diametra sugar, clove, oak, Dutch proses Cocoa powder, burnt oak, and bacon fat

 I know it’s probably odd to read bacon fat but to my pallet it did have that aroma 

 

The flavors of this wine are of burnt oak, prune, dried blackberry, tart cherry, violet, and a big note of the alcohol  

The flavors of this merlot are lacking compared to the bouquet of this and I suspect it’s because its to young

 

The mouth feel of this is sharp with it being tart and having medium tannin finishing with a dry note
