2016 Howell Mountain Merlot
The 2016 Merlot has a purple-black color with an almost opaque core. Aromas of intense wild blackberry, vanilla crème, lavender and rum raisin explode from the glass. On the palate the wine is rich with broad tannins and flavors of crème de cassis, cherry preserves, boysenberries, brown sugar and a hint of lavender. Our Merlots have always had the trademark Howell Mountain tannins that make Cabernet lovers swoon, coupled with our signature long and silky-smooth O’Shaughnessy finish.
