The ideal gift! Buy the best merlot online. Price and reviews available for Charles Krug Merlot – Red Wine From California – 750ml Bottle. Our Napa Valley Merlot has expressive aromas of ripe red and black fruit followed by hints of spice. Supple body and medium tannins envelop flavors of berry and cherry which linger on the palate through a long, smooth finish. This wine is truly one of the best values in our lineup! 90 Points James Suckling (2015 Vintage) Varietal Makeup: 83% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot. Aging: 18 Months in French Oak Barrels Vintage Information: The 2016 vintage was what some might call a typical Napa Valley vintage, with adequate and well-timed rain prior to and during the early growing season. The January rains left good moisture in the soil for the vines to begin the growing season with early bud-break; canopy growth was rapid and even. Additional rainfall in March and April supported the later vine growth as well. It was a warm but moderate summer and fog mitigated the heat extremes, causing fewer heat spikes, less dehydration and overall good uniform growth.
