I think I bought about a half dozen of these with the intent they would all last until at least 10 years post vintage. Man was I wrong! This is a really good value Merlot. It is not the best merlot are you will ever experience, but it has A soft front, brambley middle, good acidity, and goes with a variety of foods. Still finishes with a little bit of astringency so I think this one will probably continue evolving over the next five to seven years.

Cheesy label. Like really cheesy. Smells very good. Very herbal, berry leaves, cherry. Flavors are excellent. Fresh, juicy, roses, rocks and violets. Clean finish. Very good stuff. Classic case of not judging a (book) wine by its cover. — 21 days ago
This tasting goes out to @Bob McDonald - show that flag some respect...
Visually, bricking has begun, but the nose is still lively and youthful. Black cherries and raspberries transition to notes of tobacco, leather and thyme. Palate is consistent, but that signature sweetness is still there, along with a hint of sandalwood. This still has broad shoulders, but it’s much more balanced and fine-tuned with bottle age.

I can’t believe this came up! On a mission to see what’s the most random item I can find here now! 😱Not wine, but a great #Texas cider for a casual evening or #bbq with friends! It’s as good as taking a great big ol’ bite into a delicious slice of a fresh pineapple 🍍! I paired this with Laura Akin’s new Book, “Live in Love - Growing Together Through Life’s Changes,” and Brooks & Dunn 🎶! Haha, I had fun with this rating! Enjoy✨ #TEXASForever — 21 days ago
This is Sierra Foothills wine not Napa. Frogs Tooth Vineyards. Smells like three things blended. Fruits, alfalfa hay, & French perfume. Blackberry. Flavors are lovely. Berry scones and licorice like candies. Smokey but not overpowering. Has an elderberry streak. After linger is epic and lovely. Like a good book in front of a nice fire. — 17 days ago
