The 2013 Ehlers Merlot is the reflection of an amazing vintage in Napa Valley. The wine shows deep red layers and intense color. Aromas of cedar, licorice, red cherries, raspberries, and vanilla, lead to more evolved dry herbs, caramelized orange peel, and mocha notes. The mouthfeel is fresh and vibrant. Great acidity and long velvety finish with a post taste of raspberries, coffee, and vanilla beans. The wine is complex and beautiful.
