For you "Sideways" followers. This Merlot trumps all. Elegant, smooth, great structure. #frogsleap

Well balanced Merlot from Napa. Very plump and juicy. Two bottles in the cellar will sleep for a couple of more years..

Such a balanced new world merlot - dark fruit & earth & chocolate. Restrained & serious. Not wearing that new world velvet cloak 😉

A sleeper of a wine. 2013 has a personality all of its own. Velvet texture with cassis, under ripe plum and red currants. The type of Merlot that a Pinot Noir drinker should try so they understand the irony of Sideways.
