An old friend called me. I follow him on FaceBook. Not much to talk about..... I mean I know what he’s up too.

Solid representation of Napa merlot. It's no Paloma, but I don't think it was meant to aim that high.

Blackberries, plums, at the start then dark chocolate and tannins in a rich long finish

FHB 2014. Too hot and humid upstairs so hour decant in the fridge. Gone too soon- deck time chilling. Can’t wait to try it again in a few months.

2014 vintage consumed in June 2018. Smooth, cost-effective Merlot.

If you gonna have merlot, you might as well have one of the classic. Perfect napa interpretation. Soft, velvety and round. Plum dominates. Integrated tannins
