Paloma Merlot 2013
Located atop of Spring Mountain in St. Helena. Paloma Merlot is known for its bold but velvety smooth wines. Has won the coveted "Wine Of The Year" award from The Wine Spectator.
This is a strong effort from Paloma that has made its reputation for ripe, sexy, full-bodied Merlots. This wine exhibits plenty of plum, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, mocha and coffee bean in a lush, delicious and opulently textured style. It is drinking beautifully already and will continue to evolve for another decade or more.--The Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 227, 10/2016
