Thanksgiving wine number two. A total baby, but wanted to check in on it since it’s the first vintage for merlot from the Theorem team (and I love their other wines). Toes the line between being a “cab lovers merlot” and a classic merlot. Dusty, baked mixed berry pie, high percentage dark chocolate, violets and cedar on the nose. Due to its age, oak plays a big role up front but softens toward the middle and finish. The fruit, mainly red and black, is underripe and tart...black cherries, dark plums, currant, dates and a dash of baking spices. Benefitted nicely from a decant. — 12 days ago
Dark ruby/ Inky in color with a short reddish rim.
Great nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, dried fruits, cedar, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, cola and black pepper.
Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, earth, coffee, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up ( 30 minutes).
Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly, but already delicious. I would love to revisit this in 5 years.
A great sipping wine to have all by itself. Tasty, tangy and delicious. powerful, yet elegant.
A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Cabernet Franc and 4% Syrah. Fermented in (50%) New French Oak barrels. A small production of only 45 cases.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

A great Merlot that matured well and could probably gone ten more years if not more. Opened nicely through the evening. — 10 days ago
