11' Matthiasson NAPA Valley Red. 56% Merlot 32% CB 8% CF 2% PV. ALC 13.5
Decanted for an hour. Color- Dark violet/light purple. Medium bodied. Palate- Black cherry, dark chocolate, tobacco, earthiness, with light tannins. Right bank? That would be an easy guess. Would like to revisit this again in 3/5 years. Nice bottle.

This wine opens immediately. You don’t have to calm it down or shyly coax it out of its shell. Blueberry, leather, spearmint on the nose. It has all approachable notes of merlot to start but then it immediately opens up to something much more complex without sticking to you palate. Keeps you coming back. Happy I have a few more to@open

Started with tart cherry, but after a couple hours a real depth and complexity emerged with red and blue fruits plus smooth, silky leather and tobacco. Matthiasson produces winner after winner. And glitter encrusted squirrels love it. Isn't that a reason to buy it?

Mr. Matthiasson's red blend is so consistent - restrained and pure. Here, we caught a little gaminess, perhaps juniper?

A bit on the lighter side but very nice for the Merlot.
