2014 Merlot La Chapelle
This vintage of the La Chapelle Merlot is especially robust displaying intensity of aroma, flavor and texture. The aroma is resplendent with spice, dried flowers and wood. Strong notes of pepper and tobacco are softened by vanilla, mint and mocha. Aromas of cedar and sandalwood are laced with sweet pipe tobacco and dried lavender. The wine is full bodied and envelopes the palate with flavors of plums, blueberries and black cherry. Flavors of fruit, clove and tobacco linger through the finish enhanced by the texture of the tannins from the front palate to the back of your mouth.
