Excellent stuff here. Dark fruit with mocha and slight garden herbs note, too. One of the best NF cab francs I've tried.

Decanted 4 hours and was still tight. It took a lot of air to open up. This shows nice promise, though. Excellent wine and great value at $17.

Drank very well after being opened 2 hours before drinking. Cherry and blueberry are up front with garden herbs poking through. Drink now or over next couple years.

Agree with previous review. Fruit is still there but it is fading a little. Tannins are completely integrated. Nice dark fruit and coffee notes with a whiff of earth. Drink now until 2016.

PNP - Medium bodied, short finish and very boozy. I couldn't get past the heat, even 3 hours after opening.

Dark purple, almost black. As others noted...cigar box, big notes of black licorice, plum and blackberry. Nice mouthfeel with smooth leather like texture. Medium body and decent length and texture. Tannins are still present but well integrated. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Great nose, nice mouthfeel with rich texture, cherry cola, spice from the Syrah and medium finish. Drank well but agree with other reviewers...with minimal tannins left this is probably best sipped alone or paired with lighter fare.

2010 Bedell Merlot

North Fork more

4/14/2014 - LINY08 wrote: 88 points

Bedell always does a nice job with their merlot. Recommend decanting for an hour or two prior to drinking. Or, give another year in the cellar. Very good, but has room to improve, too. 87-88

Enjoyed this a little more than their 2010 vintage. Raspberry and blueberry with a touch of tomato leaf that cab franc often has. 88-89

What a nice wine. Agree with past reviewer, could use a couple more years for everything to integrate, but this is one to watch. Strong acidity with long finish where cab franc kicks in.

Deep purple, low acidity, mild tannins, very dark fruit, moderate finish. Overall, a little too sweet of a fruit bomb with not enough acidity to balance it out. Decanted for 2 hours and drank over the course of 3 hours. 87-88

2008 McCall Wines Merlot Reserve

Day 1: a lot of dark fruit on the nose with moderate acidity.
Day 2-3: opened up very nicely with tannins mellowing. Still dark fruit with leather on the nose which matched the palate well. Has a mod-long finish.

Give another 1-2 years in the bottle and this will be even better.
