2013 Simi Sonoma County Merlot Top Pick!
2013 Simi Sonoma County Merlot

Much of the fruit for this luscious red comes from Simi's Red Fan and Los Amigos estate vineyards in Alexander Valley, with the remainder sourced from across Sonoma. The 2013 growing season was particularly friendly to red grapes, allowing them to develop concentrated, elegant flavors and bright acidity. Tasting notes for the 2013 vintage from the winemaker: "Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2013 Sonoma County Merlot has rich, dark notes of blackberry and plum with cocoa, nutmeg, and earthy hints of cedar and bay laurel. Smoky bacon notes frame bright f... Read More »

2013 Super Substance "Northridge Vineyard" Wahluke Slope Merlot (Elsewhere $55) Top Pick!
2013 Super Substance "Northridge Vineyard" Wahluke Slope Merlot (Elsewhere $55)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reviewed last year under the K Vintners label, the 2013 Super Substance Merlot Northridge is a serious effort that’s reminiscent of a top flight Pomerol. It sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as ample black currants, plums, wet clay and earth in a rich, full-bodied, concentrated, layered package that’s already hard to resist. Nevertheless, I suspect it will be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well over the following 10-15 years.

2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolute epic wine is the 2013 Merlot, a blend of 95% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. It is no wimpy wine either, with the natural alcohol slightly north of 15%. A gorgeous nose including roasted espresso, melted black chocolate, blackberry, plum and cassis offers an exceptional set of aromatics. The wine has beautiful ripeness, headiness and a long finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is a beauty of terrific purity, texture and personality. Few California Merlots will ever be capable of equaling this. Drink it over the next 2 ...Read More »

2014 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Merlot

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star & Good Value* Clean and nicely composed with an attractive nose of juicy red cherries backed up by a trim bit of creamy oak, this well-crafted offering earns the nod for its fine sense of balance, its steady, well-focused fruit and its youthfully tight, slightly claret-like construction. It shows more winemaking polish and depth than its modest price might lead one to expect, and it has all of the right pieces in place to improve for a good half-decade or more. It is, in short, a lot of wine for the money, and it ranks high on our list of excep ...Read More »

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

It already shows plenty of depth and good range, yet it is bound to impress even more if set aside and given the chance to develop for another three to five years."

Fresh, nuanced and energetic in the style of the year, the 2014 is a highly representative wine for the vintage. The 2014 is not quite as generous as the 2013, but it offers a touch more vibrancy today, not to mention considerable potential.

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* This fat and full-bodied Merlot shows the same emphatic imprint of ripeness that marks the two Lewis Syrahs in this issue, and, if not a wine much concerned with subtlety or nuance, it will win admirers of no-holds-barred richness. It deserves a good deal of credit for not abandoning its varietally true, black cherry fruit in the face of so much chocolate and sweet oak, and, even if a little too hot and more gruffly tannic than it needs to be, it is a wine of grand proportion and serious depth."
