First BV. Just ok.
“The elegant structure and red-fruit expression of Beaulieu Vineyard's Napa Valley Merlot reflects both the cool growing season and small crop of the vintage. Bing cherry, plum and raspberry mingle with chocolate-cherry truffle and red rose petal in this wine's sensual aromas and flavors. Silky tannins and beautifully balanced acidity gently support the expansive flavors through the delicious, lingering finish.” — 21 days ago
Solid Saturday. Paired with filets, fingerling potatoes, and charred asparagus.
Strong tannins and oak overwhelm at first. Then after only a 30 minute decant the fruit came through and the wood went away. Turned into a complete fruit bomb. Cigar smoke, blackberries, plum. Dark purple. — 18 days ago
