The dark, formidably looking 2010 Merlot Little Sister (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits lots of Chinese black tea, mocha, black cherry, licorice, spice, coffee bean and mulberry
aromas. Creamy textured, round and succulent, this medium to full-bodied Merlot is one of the finer examples of this varietal in Napa Valley. It should drink well for a decade.
