Thorn Napa Valley Merlot Red Wine is a red wine blend with layers of character and complexity. Each bottle of wine opens with earthy aromas that fade into scents of cocoa, blackberry, cedar and anise. Made with grapes sourced from small premier vineyards throughout Napa Valley, this California red wine is smooth with delicious flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness that makes it the perfect companion for richer dishes such as pork, beef, steak or duck. This Napa Valley wine is aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels, combining merlot grapes with malbec and petite sirah to accentuate the fruit and syrah to create depth in the body, resulting in a full-bodied red blend with balanced acidity and a long, juicy finish. To preserve its taste and quality, store this merlot wine at room temperature and chill for 30 to 60 minutes before serving.
