Dark ruby fruit. Still primary. Very pure with plums and intensity. Quite alcoholic

Violets and lifted stuff. Great clarity. Again, young but a real future ahead.

A little flatter. Good fruit- quite bright and clear. A little shrill.

Gorgeous plummy open fruit with lifted bright white notes. The most merlot-like off the four.

An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Insert expletive here. Wow. So beautifully bright and clean. Total balance. Dark ripe black cherries, dark chocolate dipped blackberries, and baked rhubarb tart. So much red and black fruit here! Definitely some fig, cherry cordial and truffle on the palate. It’s powerful without being overbearing. Tough call, but I ended up settling on early ‘00s Bordeaux. Is this the pinnacle of merlot?

Something a little off and madeirized on the nose. Underneath, lovely poised fruit. A shame about the whiff on the top

Still a baby and I’d give it another saved at least. There’s the chance that the acid may fade so its a little bit of a crapshoot it’s going to stay balanced.

Big bright fruit nose. The palate is soft and velvety soft fruit and elegance. Intoxicating black currant jam.
