1991 Newton Merlot
Napa Valley, California
WB Rating: 89

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $15.00 (Library wine)
Type: Merlot
Principal varietal(s): Merlot

Purchased in the days when Newton Merlots were a little more affordable. Deep purple color. Weedy, smoky, somewhat muted nose with dominant chocolate and cigar box components. Slightly chalky but mouth-coating flavors of chocolate, tobacco, and blackberries. A moderately intense wine with a nicely layered and balanced feel to it. - WB Team 2000-12-27
