I was afraid that it might have lost its edge, considering its age, but it's been exceptional. Wonderful bouquet, and it was full-bodied and rich, with those elegant smokey notes that the best Merlots seem to have.
Laced with spicy new oak on the nose with a hint of Bing cherry and tobacco. Vibrant dark berry flavors infuse the plush front palate, rounded out by complex oak accents. Cellar age has only enhanced this Merlot and it will pair well with thick steak.
