Tasting at the breathtaking Mayacamas Vineyard. Very different expression of Merlot. Nose is so Beaujolais like, bright red fruits, hard candy, sweet spices and some green(stem) component. Medium body, high acidity, good structure, very dry, tannin is not soft and delicate enough but it is a solid wine overall. It will be a big surprise in blind tasting. 13.25% alc. 2014 vintage

A great expression of Merlot. Classic in every sense. Aromatically lifted, red plum, cigar, rustic herbaceous notes, a soft attack followed by grip and crushed rocks. I bet this ages beautifully
