2001 Paloma Napa Merlot. I'm tired of 14.8 alc wines and this is over the top. Dense, chewy, black cherry, fig, graphite and saddle leather with a long expressive velvety finish. It's held up well and could have likely lasted another 5 years. #napa #paloma #merlot #highalcohol

I bet this was unreal about 2-3 years ago. Just a little past its prime.
