Quality Merlot, though not particularly complex or memorable. My wife enjoyed it a little more than me. For me, not as nice as I remembered the 2007 vintage of the same. Didn't see any reason to hold this longer, so I'm glad we drank it when we did.
Lovely wine. Given the cold temperatures, it took a while for the wine to warm up. Once it opened up and warmed up it was, well balanced with good mid palate and finish. Enough red fruit, and oak on the palate to make it interesting.
Nice Merlot. Alcohol a little disjointed. Good nose, medium body and long finish. Too much residual sugar holding back the score and gives it that "jammy" flavor in the background. Nice well rounded with just enough acidity to make it pair well with grilled meat.
