The 2017 Annabella Napa Valley Merlot is indicative of how the varietal ought to taste. It is dark and brooding in the glass, with layered aromas of black plum, graphite, and black olive. In the mouth, the wine is dense and engaging, with broad tannins and flavors of blackberry, espresso, black pepper and a whisper of vanilla bean.
