    Visually, the wine coats the glass with a viscous magenta glycerin, slowly morphing into sheets of tears. Aroma: licorice, coffee and a fast moving core of pure blackberry, currant and cherry Palate: extremely concentrated and profoundly dense coffee, blackberry, sandalwood and prune Impression: extraordinary in purity, the oak integrates nicely with several hours of air at this stage.

    Winery Notes

    Wells on Wine - A nearly perfect wine, the '07 Buccella Merlot delivers complete and utter satisfaction in every aspect of the experience... the wine has just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, but forget your preconceptions of Merlot as a boring varietal... this wine brings power, authority and drinks like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a classic meritage... with lots of intensely concentrated black cherry, blackcurrant, cocoa, boysenberry, espresso, cedar, smoke, scorched sugar and oak aspects in the nose and mouth... the richness is balanced by a wonderfully elegant acidity that progresses with airtime and gives the wine immense uplift to balance the intensity... the finish is long and luscious, with not a single imperfection to be sensed anywhere... a truly gorgeous and ageworthy wine that is drinking beautifully now... certainly the best Napa Merlot I've had in recent memory... can't wait to try the '07 Buccella Cabernet!
