Chateau Souverain Merlot, Alexander Valley 2002
Region: Alexander Valley
Winery: Chateau Souverain
Deep ruby in color, this concentrated Alexander Valley Merlot offers aromas of ripe black cherry and black plum with a subtle back note of bittersweet chocolate. The 2002 vintage presents integrated fruit on the palate that mingles with a hint of black pepper from the Petite Sirah together with brown spices and cedar, which comes from aging in oak barrels. The structured ripe tannins are layered with moderate acidity that exudes the ripe fruit flavors together with a suppleness of oak that lingers throughout the long, velvety finish.
