Valley Legend 2009 Merlot Napa Valley

Valley Legend’s 2009 Napa Valley Merlot is a great value-wine that we just couldn’t pass up. Sourced from a selection of top Napa Valley vineyards, this velvety smooth blend of Merlot (87%), Cabernet Sauvignon (9%), Malbec (2%), and Petit Verdot (2%) is nicely balanced with ripe fruit flavors that show off what this world-class wine region is all about! The Valley Legend 2009 Merlot was awarded a SILVER MEDAL at the Shanghai Wine Exhibition – the highest placing wine from the United States – while besting wines from all over France, Australia, Spain, and Italy! The Merlot also garnered a SILVER MEDAL from the Beverage Tasting Institute and a SILVER MEDAL from the Dallas Morning News Wine Competition. Dark fruit aromas of plums and dried cranberry mingle with a touch of floral notes on the nose, while the palate is nicely integrated with soft oak, anise, cedar, and smoky French vanilla flavors. The mouth feel is rich and full bodied, carrying the weight of the subtle tannins into a long, smooth finish of dark chocolate and mixed berries. Yum! [+]
