Taking on a Right Bank complexity and still showing lots of structure in its eighth year. This is a big and muscular Merlot that is starting to add more nuance to its black cherry and spice driven profile. This wine is still on the way up and I guess will still be going strong at age 15. Delicious and complex. www.advinetures.ca
2007 was as good as it gets in Washington, and this Woodward Canyon Merlot is still in a hopeful spot on its ageing curve. Still fresh and bright, the complex nose is generous with its dark chocolate, bark, and plum. More on the palate, but the acids are something to behold and lead you through a long finish of many good things. On day two, this is still holding up, with rich chocolate, olive and mint on the silky smooth palate. This is gorgeous palate-staining merlot with lovely, subtle complexity.
