A truly excellent Merlot which, at age 14, is showing magnificently. Beautifully structured - no flabby old age syndrome - yet silky smooth and round in the mouth. Amazing generosity of fruit, almost like a young Zinfandel, but with layers of complex flavors: raspberry, plum, cassis, smoke, cedar. Beautifully balanced and remarkably fresh-tasting. - HK 2015-04-01
