Paoletti Merlot Napa Valley 97

Very dark in color with a meaty rich nose with scents of wet leather, cinnamon, oak and black berry. Powerful extraction on the palate with black tar and cassis flavors blending smoothly with the velvety oak. The finish is very luscious and theatrical with its thick amounts of black berry, plum and vanilla. Not just a wine but an experience. $50.
