WS 92 WA 91 - "With a deep purple core the 2010 Merlot is deceptively bright in its youth. Fragrant raspberry and soft white pepper spice are balanced with sweet vanilla and deep fennel. After a few swirls of the glass black cherry and blueberry tart aromas emerge with some subtle gravel minerality. This year the mouthfeel is silky and lush with more of the same range of fruit as the nose, but with a larger degree of minerality. The tannins are moderately chalky without being overbearing. The wine finishes with dark cocoa and riper raspberry."
Description

Details

WS 92 WA 91 Pts- According to Wine Spectator - "Deftly combines a dense complexity with a supple texture. Aromas of red currant, mocha and fresh earth lead to layered flavors of black cherry, pencil lead and mineral. The tannins are firm on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2020."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Merlot Spring Mountain is quite attractive. The firm mountain tannins give the wine its backbone. Raspberry jam, flowers and spices flesh out in the radiant, inviting finish. The addition of 13% Cabernet Franc adds gorgeous layers of aromatic nuance and complexity. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious wine from Barnett. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."

Tasting Notes - "With a deep purple core the 2010 Merlot is deceptively bright in its youth. Fragrant raspberry and soft white pepper spice are balanced with sweet vanilla and deep fennel. After a few swirls of the glass black cherry and blueberry tart aromas emerge with some subtle gravel minerality. This year the mouthfeel is silky and lush with more of the same range of fruit as the nose, but with a larger degree of minerality. The tannins are moderately chalky without being overbearing. The wine finishes with dark cocoa and riper raspberry. This wonderful wine will age beautifully over the next 7-8 years (2019-2020)." 14.2% ABV.
