9.3

Haven’t had this since 2020, so 3.5 years later... Last review included “cherries, cherries, cherries,” and had it at 9.1. This has evolved very well! Chocolate, cherries, and a very nice funk that gives this wine a touch of old world. Big fan! 93-94 — 3 days ago

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

2019 vintage. Medium-heavy body. This was dynamite. Super-concentrated nose and flavors. Showy (for Mayacamas) now. Great mineral notes. 2018 was awesome as well but not nearly as up front. 3.27.24. — 18 days ago

The Scooter Merlot 2020

It's time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Nice nose with red fruits, light oak, spices, chocolates, licorice and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with red currants, cherries, raspberries, earth, black coffee, bitter vegetables, light oak, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and cranberries.

This Australian Merlot is drinking nicely now. Earthier than I expected it to be. Feels like a blend of new and old world.

Showing a soft and plush mouthfeel, and a bit bitter once it opens up.

Easy drinking and better after a couple of hours of airtime. Changes every 30 minutes in the decanter. Interesting.

I had a few different vintages years ago, and it is a completely different wine today.

Aged in American oak barrels. Vegan.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$30.
