The nose is full throttle from the get-go—a surprise reminding me of my recent trip to Magic Mountains, as West Coast Racers is a roller coaster with no slow-burn climb uphill. Oh no—you zoom out the gates and go through a series of twisty-windy loops and it’s a shock to your system but then you’re like “let’s do it again!”
And so with this. That explosive nose is savory and earthy like a blackberry compote kissed by a forest spirit. On the palate the tannins are the epitome of velvety and well-integrated. I get all the aromas of the nose here, plus some more red fruit. And vanilla. And then again with almost an…iodine herb thing I always associate with Italian wines, no matter the grape. And then a hint of…Montenegro? Is this the wine for both roller coaster and amaro aficionados? Stand-up Merlot. Do it.

An interesting Tuscan Merlot, only produced in outstanding years, deep Ruby with aromas of black berry fruits, sweet spice and herb spice. On the palate flavors of blueberry and sweet cherry with vanilla, sweet tobacco and smoky oak. Fine elegant tannins, long finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Very nice!!
