Paradigm Merlot 2015
“Our Merlot is well suited to the Oakville district of Napa Valley. This 2015 is a deep ruby color with aromas of red and black plums, cherry, dried herbs, and light toasty oak. Flavors match the aromas. A mouth-filling, seamless silky wine across the palate. Clean yet layered with light dusty tannins. Wonderful mid-palate texture with good length. Somewhat more concentration, typical of the 2015 vintage. Should age well for 10-15 years or more.” Heidi Barrett. The nose is amazing. Nice dark garnet color, aromas are very plummy and ripe with perfect French Oak layering. Soft across the palate yet flavors are explosive and exciting. Ripe jammy fruit with a very silky texture and mouthfeel. The tannins are quite moderate in this beautiful Oakville Merlot. I love the balance here between the acidity, fruit, and oak. Nice length too. Flavors persist for several minutes.
