2014 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and rich-tasting, with finely interwoven flavors of dark cherry, plum tart and blackberry that are accented by cocoa powder notes. Asian spice accents fill the lush finish. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (11/2017) Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much centered on Merlot’s affable, red cherry fruit from the very first sniff and gaining volume and richness as it goes, this well-focused, moderately full-bodied effort gets high marks for its balance and careful making and is a very professional look at the grape. It is firmed by nominal tannins yet is not at all difficult to enjoy n ...Read More »

2014 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Vinous: "Keenan's 2014 Merlot is a very pretty wine that shows the more translucent side of Merlot. Lifted, bright and articulate, the 2014 offers lovely finesse in its red-toned fruit and floral aromatics. I would prefer to drink the 2014 sooner rather than later given its mid-weight structure. (AG)" (12/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot from Napa is a delicious, solidly constructed 100% Merlot that sells for a reasonable price. Chinese black tea, black cherry, mocha and some underbrush are all found in this medium-bodied, deliciously fruity, complex Merlot to drink over the ...Read More »

2014 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tart black cherry meets plum, strawberry and clove, while softened tannins belie the wine’s overall density and sense of generosity. A smoky waft of cigar amplifies the power and sinewy nature of the fullbodied wine, which is ready to lie down for a rest. Enjoy best 2020 through 2024. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (6/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots. The 2014 Merlot includes 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and is a beauty. Mocha and chocolaty notes intermixed with red cherry, plum and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this perfumed and fragrant styl ...Read More »

2014 Keenan "Mailbox Vineyard Reserve" Spring Mountain District Merlot

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Merlot Reserve Mailbox Vineyard has traditionally been one of the top Merlots made in Northern California. Beautiful deep black cherry and blackcurrant fruit with some spice box and earth jump from the glass of this dense ruby/plum colored wine. It is rich, medium to full-bodied, pure, textured and serious. This is a beauty to drink over the next 12-15 years." 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot Reserve Mailbox Vineyard has traditionally been one of the top Merlots made in Northern California.

2014 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

97 points James Suckling: "Blackberries, blueberries, forest floor and hints of Spanish cedar. Full-bodied and tight with firm and silky tannins and long and beautiful focus. Goes on for minutes. Terrific wine. Drink or hold." (1/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot is a blend of 94.5% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It has a dense purple color, although not as saturated as the 2015 or 2013, with a beautiful fruited nose of blackberry, plum, chocolate, mocha and espresso. The aromatics are killer and then the wine hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied lushness and an expression ...Read More »

2015 Emmolo Napa Valley Merlot

Jenny Wagner, youngest child of Chuck Wagner (of Caymus fame), is the winemaker at Emmolo, which is named after her mother Cheryl Emmolo. The Emmolo family too has a long history in Napa Valley. Great-grandfather Salvatore Emmolo started a grape rootstock nursery in Napa in 1923. His son Frank took over the nursery and planted Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot on the family property. Hence the two grape varietals grown and made by Emmolo. The 2015 growing season was dry and warm. Thanks to California's drought, yields were quite low, but this translated into co... Read More »

2015 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Merlot Blueline Estate gives pretty red and black cherry notes with a compelling spiciness in the undercurrent plus hints of potpourri and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied with rounded tannins and just enough freshness, if finishes on an earthy note. (LPB)" (10/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Merlot Blueline is a forward, juicy wine. Succulent red cherry and plum fruit give this forward juicy Merlot much of its immediacy. Drink it over the next handful of years. (AG)" (3/2018)

2014 Ridge Vineyards "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot

92 points Vinous: "Ridge's 2014 Merlot Estate possesses notable purity of fruit, brilliant aromatic presence and fabulous balance. Pliant, open-knit and super-expressive, Ridge's Merlot is a terrific choice for readers who are just starting to get to know the Ridge wines, as it can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. What a joy it is to taste the 2014 today. Sadly, there will be no 2015, as yields were punishingly low. (AG)" (8/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also inky colored, the 2014 Merlot Estate (100% Merlot) offers lots of ripe black cherry, white chocolate, espresso roast, and licorice in a sup ...Read More »

2013 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted two Merlots from Freemark Abbey. The 2013 Merlot Napa, which comes from multiple sources, is their biggest cuvée (89.1% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec aged almost 16 months in oak). A deep ruby color, with notes of mocha, white chocolate, black cherry and dried herbs, the wine is medium-bodied, shows loads of supple, lush fruit, easygoing soft tannin and a round juiciness. Isn’t this exactly what buyers of Merlot are looking for? (RP)" (12/2015)

2014 Gainey Santa Ynez Valley Merlot

As one of the pioneer's of winemaking in the Santa Ynez Valley the Gainey's have made many great wines over the last 4 decades. The problem is that they are still a little known name in the wine conversation and that is a shame because they have made a ton of great wines over the years and were practicing sustainability and organic farming way before those things became buzz words in the business. Owning over 1500 acres in the area they have numerous, non-contiguous, estate vineyards and also farm fruit, vegetables, cattle, horses and hay. We think this ... Read More »

2015 Leonetti Walla Walla Valley Merlot (Previously $100)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Along with DeLille, Leonetti's Merlot is always a contender for the Merlot of the vintage. The 2015 Walla Walla Merlot sports a vibrant purple color to go with gorgeously fresh notes of red plum, black cherries intermixed with notes of graphite and spring flowers. Supple, polished and fruit-forward, with light tannin and good concentration, it's already hard to resist and made in a forward, delicious style. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.

2014 Ehlers Estate St. Helena Merlot

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This producer makes a perennial standout of the variety. It is subdued and elegant in its approach to the lengthy layered weight and the integrated fruit. Plum, cedar and black licorice form a core of flavor over soft supple tannin and peppery oak, ending in a burst of spice and leather. (VB)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Founded by Gold Rush merchant Bernard Ehlers in the 1880s, Ehlers Estate is now owned by the Leducq Foundation, established by Jean and Sylviane Leducq to support cardiovascular research.

2015 Plumpjack Napa Valley Merlot

93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Merlot is gorgeous. Soft, open-knit and radiant, the 2015 is all class. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, mocha and espresso resonate beautifully in this lush Merlot that will provide immense pleasure pretty much upon release. Expressive aromatics complement the wine's textural resonance and enveloping personality beautifully. This luscious, bold Merlot is first class all the way. (AG)" (3/2018)

2013 Darioush "Signature" Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Big, bold and powerful as is the wont of Darioush Merlots with sweet oak and dense, dark cherry fruit to spare, this fully ripe and impressively stuffed working will find no complaints for lack of volume or richness. It is pushed to the limits without stepping over the line, and its unabashed succulence is tempered by lots of tightening back-palate tannins that guarantee very positive, long-term growth. A minimum investment of a half-decade is clearly called for here, and it is guaranteed to handsomely repay ten years or more."

2012 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

The result is a density of rich, soft and spicy red fruit supported by structured tannins. This is ready for the table and a wide range of pairings. (VB)" (12/2015) 90 points James Suckling: "A fresh style of Merlot with light chocolate and blueberry character. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Food matcher."

2010 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "From first sniff on through to its very long, tannin-firmed finish, this very solid, nicely extracted Merlot is marked by continuous and incisive, black cherry fruit, and its carefully placed oak lends a fine trim of sweet spice without ever once interfering with its keen fruity message. It is supple and slightly rounded in feel just as good Merlot should be, yet it has the grip and integral tannin of a wine meant for keeping and will age famously for another half decade or more."

2011 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2011 Merlot Blue Line offers lots of plum and sweet cherry notes, and no hints of herbaceousness or hollowness. It is a strong effort for this vintage, and should drink nicely for another 5-7 years. All three 2011 Blue Line cuvees looked to be lush, ripe, gorgeously fruity, pure wines with dense ruby/purple colors, lots of body and glycerin, and, surprisingly, normal alcohol levels. This appears to be a terrific vintage at Hourglass, but even at one year of age, these wines are still dominated by sensational levels of fruit. ...Read More »

2009 O'Shaughnessy "Extended Barrel Age" Howell Mountain Merlot

Our first red wine to be released from the 2009 vintage is a return of our Howell Mountain Estate Merlot which was not produced in 2008 due to the severe frost and will not be produced in 2010 as it was all consumed in our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Purple-black color with an almost opaque core leads into intense wild blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, hibiscus flower, brown sugar and cinnamon aromas. On the palate the wine has sweet, ripe and rich flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, and dried cranberries with a hint of lavender. Our Merl... Read More »
