Merlot Me

Gorgeous amber garnet, sweet dessert and buttery wet hay vie with marzipan for dominance as a little tasteful armpit blows off.  Bright vanilla piercings taint a street-wise chocolate coating elevating relatively full fruit over the middle.  A beautiful example of age on an unsophisticated wine. Realistically thinning in classic Merlot fashion, but far from hollow. Sweet, delectable goodness–oak far gone here–a lil green briar tannin dries things out just in time for your parents to walk in the door.

2010 RAYMOND Merlot Napa Valley 14.5
