Napa County Sonoma County Merlot 2017

Lush and ripe. Beautiful. Drink young with a one hour decant, or could use 5 years laying down. Rich and decadent. I’m a fan of Pride and their jammy juice. — 4 days ago

Peju Province Winery

Napa Valley Merlot 2015

It’s time for #MerlotThursday. Here is a delicious one from Napa Valley.

Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black plums, figs, dried fruits, cooked raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, light vegetables, cola, earth, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, cedar, earth, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and coke.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Merlot from Napa Valley. Big bold and beautiful.

Showing a great mouthfeel with nice complexity, once it's opened up. Intense, rich and extracted. Teeth staining color. I've had it many times and it is very consistent.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins. So give it time.

I've had this vintage 6 months ago and it is showing nicer now.

Good by itself or with food. A great sipping wine.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

My last bottle of this amazing vintage. I debated opening it but wife just had surgery and I thought this would cheer her up. Absolutely the right choice 🍷It continues to open up and release big lush red fruit with soft tannins and a lingering aftertaste. Will not further improve. Time to drink this Treasure 🍷 — 9 days ago
