Cosimo Commisso reveals another divine wine to add to your spring drinking list: the 2013 Merlot from Napa Valley’s Shafer Vineyards
Freshly released in fall of 2015, this merlot didn’t take long to steal my heart (and those of any wine lover who tasted it). The Napa Valley-based vineyard is known for producing award-winning wines, and this one only continues that legacy with its splendidly brisk yet buoyant personality. With its notes of sweet red cherry, plum and spice, Shafer’s Merlot 2013 is an idyllic wine to complement those cooler summer evenings, the ones where you’re wrapped in your favourite knit blanket by the fire outside. Pick up a bottle to discover every reason why it was awarded 92 points by Antonio Galloni.
