2014 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot (Elsewhere $60) Top Pick!
2014 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot (Elsewhere $60)

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 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 »

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 Columbia Crest "H3" Horse Heaven Hills Merlot

Wine Enthusiast: "he aromas on this wine are quite reticent but the palate delivers plenty of smooth, sensuous cherry and vanilla flavors. Dark chocolate notes persist on the finish." (6/2017) Wine Spectator: "A lively red, with cherry and tobacco aromas and zesty, medium-bodied plum, anise and spice flavors. Drink now through 2020. 67,000 cases made." (5/2017) K&L Notes: Horse Heaven Hills is located in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains, where dry and sunny conditions evenly ripen the grapes. This 100% Merlot bottling was aged for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak (1/3 new).

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 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much on point with respect to its variety’s classic and close-to-succulent, dark cherry fruit but a well-balanced Merlot with a keen tannic spine and one that never errs to softness or loses its way to pushy ripeness, this continuous, nicely extracted version hints quietly at Cabernet in its solid, slightly tighter structure. 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."

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) 89-91 points Vinous: "In 2015, the Merlot Blueline is ripe, juicy and powerful, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Today, the Merlot looks like it will drink well young. Some of the more distinctive savory notes this wine often shows have been baked ou ...Read More »

2014 Emmolo Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot Emmolo is named after Cheryl Emmolo, Jenny Wagner’s mother, who runs this wine operation. It is a fleshy, dense ruby/purple-colored wine with a full body, loads of fruit and straightforward, chunky, fleshy, consumer-friendly, big, chewy Merlot to drink over the next 7-8 years.

2002 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Wonderfully complex, deep aromas of plum, currant, licorice, smoke, dark chocolate and spices. Superconcentrated, round, sweet and creamy, with highly complex flavors of plum, dark chocolate, minerals and leather. This offers breadth and palate coverage rare for Merlot that's not grown on the Pomerol plateau. The rising finish boasts superb breadth and length. A great California Merlot." (6/2005) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep, rich 2002 Merlot is not up to the level of the 2003, although it does possess fabulously complex notes of scorched earth, chocolate, ...Read 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)" 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. The 42-acre estate that surrounds the winery is CCOF certified organic and the ... Read More »

2000 Quilceda Creek Washington Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-colored 2000 Merlot (only 225 cases) is more tannic and rustic than what is typically found at Quilceda Creek. Produced primarily from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard fruit (66%), it exhibits waxy, spicy blackberry aromas. On the palate, this firm, medium-bodied wine offers outstanding purity and focus. Black currants, cassis, and black cherries can be discerned in its foursquare character. (PR)" (12/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Nuanced aromas of black raspberry, blackcurrant, licorice, tobacco leaf and smoky oak. Suave and sweet, but with sound acidity and solid ...Read More »

2013 Rombauer Carneros Merlot

(11/2016) K&L Notes: When you hear the name Rombauer you probably think of buttery, toasty Chardonnay, but did you know that the first wine made by Rombauer Vineyards was a Cabernet Sauvignon in 1980 and it's first Merlot in 1983? From the winery: "Merlot’s finest qualities emerge in cooler climates and clay soils, thus it is ideally suited for the Carneros region, where San Pablo Bay meets the southern e... Read More »

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."

2006 Switchback Ridge "Peterson Family Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Enormously rich and decadent, but supple. Shows a fat, fleshy mouthfeel framing lush flavors of black and red currants, cherry pie filling, mocha and cedar. There’s a firm minerality and tannic backbone that provide structural balance." (6/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Sleekly structured yet builds in intensity. Offers aromas of currant and mocha and rich, layered flavors of black cherry, exotic spice and toasty oak." (11/2009) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Superripe but subdued plummy aroma. Ripe, lush and moderately concentrated, but with a classically dry, restrained quality. A serious, minerally ...Read More »

2002 Provenance Carneros Merlot

A Merlot with structure? If you like your Merlot soft as velvet and easy to quaff, this may not be the wine for you. But if you like a Merlot with tannin, with acidity and grip, this is a truly shining example from a wine label we at K&L are quickly falling for! One Puff from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Although its tense young aromas imply good concentration and depth, they are far less open and forthcoming than this supple and well-balanced wine turns out to be in the mouth. It is nicely sweetened with oak and tastes of red cherries, ... Read More »

1997 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Merlot
Bid on this bottle of 1997 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Merlot (93RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Merlot might be called liquified Viagra. An incredibly sexy nose of smoke, black fruits, cappuccino, and toasty wood is followed by an expansive, terrifically concentrated wine with a sumptuous texture, no hard edges, beautifully integrated acidity and tannin, and a long, 35 second finish. According to the back label, about 5% Cabernet Sauvignon was added in the blend of this stunningly aromatic, multi-dimensional wine. It should drink well for 12-15 years. This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed. (RP)" (08/1999)

1999 Forman Napa Valley Merlot

The style of Ric Forman's wines is explained by the fact Forman especially enjoys right-bank Bordeaux "and the only chardonnay I can drink is from Chablis". Forman has recently bought all new equipment, including a gentle crusher, for the 2001 harvest. Forman does not believe in doing extended maceration. "This would compromise the bright red fruit qualities we get here, and would give the wines a more reduced chocolate and coffee character. Besides, the tannins here are ripe enough to begin with." Forman continues to give his wines a light fining an... Read More »

(3/2009) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers ripe cherry and toasty sage aromas, with concentrated and complex flavors of dried plum and herb that finish with dusty, mineral-tinged tannins.

1986 Duckhorn "Vine Hill Ranch" Napa Valley Merlot
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1986 Duckhorn "Vine Hill Ranch" Napa Valley Merlot. Dense currant and black cherry fruit are framed by heady cedar, vanilla and spice aromas and flavors. Very tightly knit upon release, the 20+ years in bottle should have helped it unwind a bit; drinking more like a laid back Californian than a hustle and bustle easterner. While many of California's young wineries, especially those in the Napa Valley, chose to focus their energy on Cabernet Sauvignon, Dan and Margaret Duckhorn bucked the trend, devoting a lot of energy to Merlot as a stand-alone wine, not just as a blending grape.
