Product Description

Vinous (90-92+) WA (88-90) Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "A rich, explosive wine, the 2013 Merlot races across the palate with dark red and blue fruit, graphite, smoke, tobacco and menthol. Today, the 2013 is unusually firm, but it should start to soften with more time in barrel. White flowers, spices and plums are laced into the super-expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. A splash of Petit Verdot rounds out the blend."

According to Robert Parker - "A barrel sample of the 2013 Merlot, which is a similar blend to the 2012, looks like it’s going to be as good, although it plays it closer to the vest and is more restrained at present. The wine exhibits dense ruby/plum color, sweet berry fruit mixed with background oak, soil undertones and a touch of unsmoked cigar tobacco. A little chocolate is also in the mix. Drink this medium-bodied wine over the next 10-plus years." 15.3% ABV.
