What a pleasant surprise.....I am not normally a Merlot fan, but this Merlot was exceptional. The bottle is at its absolute peak....Beautiful nose of Black and Blue fruit with forest floor overtones. Creamy red cherry mid palate, totaly integrated with smooth tannins and a balanced long finish . This is a bottle that I wished lated longer. Wife and I have it on a crisp Pennsylvania October aftenoon....Perfect.
popped for Christmas party. I was surprised at how much fruit was left. especially a merlot this old from Cali. very happy with it but dont wait if you have any in your cellar. drink up! The wine looks Garnet colored.
