This has such an ordinary nose. Not unpleasant but no different or more engaging than dozens of California merlots...

Cynically commercial, sweet and oaky red wine; short finish. Below basic. Tasted October 2014.

The 2012 Cannonball Merlot, sourced from Southern Sonoma Valley and aged in French Oak for 1 year; has deep aromas of prune, caramel, nuttiness and wood on the nose and blackberry, black cherry, vanilla and oak on the palate. It is a full bodied, dry, fruity wine; with good acidity, refined tannins and a long finish. This is a food friendly; drink now and for the next few years (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 87 pts. Tasted in Oct/14 at 'Tasted at Discover Sonoma County event ' http://grapeselections.com/sonoma-wines-2014/.
