We forgot this was in the fridge- kind of like finding a dollar in your pocket.

Black olive, black current, quite saline, somewhat bloody. Ripe damson plum. Slight bubblegum on the nose. Not overly round or tannic. Nicely evolved.

After 10 years, this lively Merlot showed orange color round the rim, deep dark fruits up front and virtually no tannins. Almost like a port. While enjoyable I should've opened it at least two years ago. Sometimes wines seem to hide from us. The winery was pouring a 2008 vintage last week which tasted close to this one.

Really clean for a aged merlot, strong fruit up front , oxidized but not destroyed , kind of meaty oak notes in the mid pallet , not a slutty wine but easy to drink .. Not really reduced

Fruit forward with a Rutherford cab-like finish: dust and leather.
