Olive you forever
Cab Fans - this is the Merlot that we guarantee will win you over.
Today’s Vitus Wines 2010 Napa Valley Reserve Merlot is a single vineyard designate wine that is as richly layered and flavorful as your favorite Napa Cab. Lush dark notes of black cherry, blueberry, and boysenberry are joined by solid structure and extra fine tannins. This is a decanter, and will only continue to evolve the longer you allow it to rest in your cellar.
Cab lovers, be sure to give today’s gem a chance. And Merlot fans, we highly recommend that you stock up!
A rich, vibrant crimson at its heart. Intriguingly opaque.
Delightfully balanced, with full dark cherry and plum laid overtop soft dark earth, black peppercorn, blueberry, espresso bean, chocolate, and rosemary.
Lush dark fruit joins equally powerful hints of dark earth and spice in this wine. Sandalwood, tilled summer earth, peppercorn, and pomegranate black tea frame a fruity core of black cherry, blueberry, and mulberry.
Best decanted, this gem will last for years. The lengthy finish is highlighted by solid structure and extra fine tannins.
Grilled skirt steak, marinated in fresh citrus, garlic, and cumin, then finished on a charcoal grill.
