Still quite oaky in the nose and palate, some fruit that is fading into earthiness, lovely table wine with some richness, good balance and emerging softness. After 6 years I would expect more integration, but the wine is good for standard table duty.

Good value Washington State Merlot. Aromatic and complex. Smooth and nice berries on the palate. Nice with roasted chicken.

2/18/14 – Initially it had a musky, woody scent and taste. After hyperdecanting it for 20 seconds though, the woody taste mellowed out quite a bit and it had a fairly lively taste. Unfortunately it was still nothing to write home about. It tasted good, but it wasn't anything special. It had some hints of blackberry and lot's of spiciness, but for the most part, there wasn't anything going on besides the grapes followed by a short finish.
