So so so good thanks Scott for sharing this at the Vintage Report. I loved it. Really this might be the best that can be made. Love merlot.

Didn't give it enough time to open. One of my favorite vineyards - but didn't live up this evening.

Last day in Napa Valley. Always bittersweet. We’ve been fortunate to visit Jarvis a few times over the years and they always do a fantastic tasting as well as tour. A must visit in Napa.

Though we weren’t able to taste any Reserve Cabernets or their Unfiltered Finch Hollow Chardonnay, this merlot was probably my favorite of the tasting, though the normal finch Hollow Chardonnay was a close second! One of the few Merlots I actively purchase when I can. Dark but very clean/pure fruit profile of black cherry, cedar, nutmeg and a really lovely texture that is incredibly smooth.
