Bigger, bolder and more concentrated than your usual Merlot, this one is magnificent! The nose is perfumed and cherry-like with dried herbs, sweet spice and toasty oak. The fruit flavors are more powerful than one would expect as they wrap the tongue with wild cherry, luscious plum and just a hint of aromatic tarragon. The Azalea Springs is richly structured and well-balanced with welcoming tannins. Fabulously fruity, this Merlot is sure to please both the connoisseur and novice alike!.
Rombauer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Reg - 41.00):
Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, concentrated wine that exhibits layers of plums, black cherries, and blueberries that are well integrated. The wine shows ripe fruit flavors of black cherries and plums that are nicely balanced with light vanilla and oak from barrel aging. This is a fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon that has the tannin structure to last many years, but drinks well now.

This wine is classic Napa Valley Merlot with a deep ruby-red color; aromas of tart red cherry with hints of black tea and cinnamon-vanilla spice join the supple tannins on the palate.
Avalon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Wg-93Pts):
An exotic, spicy nose of cranberry, plum, and boysenberry; with hints of cedar and mint. The mouth has intense, jammy flavors of ripe berries,cherry, cassis, and sweet vanilla. Round tannins and bright acidity provide a lengthy finish of black pepper and red fruits last many years, but drinks well now.

Wonderful ripe cherry, cassis and blackberry fruit is complimented with white pepper, cedar, clove, rosemary and dark chocolate aromas and flavors. An elegant wine with smooth, supple tannins, perfect acid balance and a long, lingering finish. The fruit concentration and the seamless fullness of this wine make it enjoyable now, but the ample tannin structure of this wine will allow it to improve for a decade or more.
