A good week for merlot - right bank last night. Completely different tonight. A hint of oak, chocolate and blackberries on the nose. Well integrated tannins lots of time left but drinking well a gentle but very long finish.

Nice comparator to the Ch. Figeac - terroir matters. Love this. Tradition be damned. Nose o f forest floor, and toasted mushroom. Juicy and long finish. Lovely wine

Floral notes, medium bodied, more red fruits with great elegance and freshness

Known for their Chianti, this Castello di Ama Merlot was super elegant, balanced, and incredibly food-friendly with only 13.5% ABV. What California Merlot should aspire to be and actually would give a run for the money to Masseto, at about 1/4 the price.

Tool awhile to open up (decanted) pretty tart on the attack. Some tannins - 1/2 hour in - opened up beautifully.
