Better than 2009. Try in 2017."

2007 La Prade, Cotes de Francs Top Pick!
2007 La Prade, Cotes de Francs

Wine Spectator: "Aromas of licorice, tar and some blackberry lead to a medium body, with light tannins and a fruity, delicate finish." K&L Notes: Château La Prade, just four and a half hectares, was purchased by the Thienpont family in 2000. Despite the tiny size, part of the vineyards are on the limestone plateau and the rest are on a south-facing slope rich in iron. This somewhat unique terroir results in a rich Merlot-dominated blend with great structure. We tasted this wine on our April 2014 Bordeaux trip and bought it on the spot. Delicious, fruit-forward wine to enjoy for th... Read More »

Dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass in this generous, inviting Tuscan Merlot. There is a lot to love about the 2009, starting with its impeccable balance.

2012 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

This Merlot-dominated blend reminds us why Duckhorn earned its reputation as one of California's preminent sources for Merlot. The 2012 vintage, with its long hang time, was perfect for making a rich, seamless, structured wine. Winemaker notes: "From its aromas of Santa Rosa plum, creme de cassis, violet and Herbes de Provence to its enticing flavors of olallieberry, sticky toffee and vanilla bean, this is a complex and compelling expression of Napa Valley Merlot."

(11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion.

It has the right fruity pieces in place to commend four or five years of keeping, and it delivers far more than do most at its price level."

With time in the glass the flavors blossom beautifully as the wine gains texture and resonance. Merlot still suffers from a less than stellar reputation in some circles, which is unfortunate.

Sweet black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar are some of the many notes that flesh out. The 2014 is quite dark and brooding in personality. I imagine the 2014 will drink beautifully for decades, although it is also going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. There is so much to like here.

It is fully grounded in the rich, cherry-like qualities that define good Merlot, and it is well-balanced, weighty and seductively supple in feel. It teases with complexing touches of toast, sweet cream, graphite and mint that will be amplified as it ages, and, its very considerable immediate ...Read More »

1989 de Sales, Pomerol

According to Robert Parker (1/93): "The 1989 is surprisingly full bodied for a de Sales, with a deep, intense, black cherry-scented bouquet intertwined with the scents of vanillin and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays fine ripeness, a heady alcohol content, and a long, tannic, rich finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-2003." (01/93)

2014 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival) New!
2014 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Gazin 2014 is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc picked between 19 September and 8 October. I like the freshness on the nose here: more black than red fruit, a little broody and introspective at the moment but well defined with mineral tones coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin and nicely judged acidity. There is a sense of nonchalance about this Gazin, nothing over-ambitious, something perhaps in keeping with the vintage, uninteresting in replicating the 2009 or 2010, happy in its own skin. (NM)" (4/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "A fre ...Read More »

2010 Tertre Daugay, St-Emilion

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This has the rich, dark blueberry and blackberry fruit of the vintage, with ample graphite and spice and a solid, tannic backbone. Toasty, but with flesh. (Web-2011)"92 points James Suckling: "Fascinating wine with dark fruit and citrus undertones. Full and refined. Lovely finish." (4/2011) 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Tertre Daugays I have tasted (although the 2009 is also attractive), this sleeper of the vintage exhibits a dense purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet kirsch, black fruits, licorice and graphite. Medium to full-bodied with a corpulent, layered mouthfeel, light to mode ...Read More »

1987 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

91 points Wine Spectator: "Deep in color and flavor, this is rich, dense but flavorful, with tiers of currant, plum and cherry flavors flanked by toasty oak. Has generous fruit, a pretty aftertaste and the tannins to stand up to a decade of cellaring." (12/1989)

2001 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Merlot

93 points Wine Spectator: "(Top 100 of 2003) Beautifully crafted, exquisitely balanced and rich in currant, exotic spice and ripe blackberry fruit. Turns spicy and exhibits pretty mocha-scented oak, with a long, broad, rich aftertaste." (11/2003)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good dark red. Smoky aromas of black raspberry, coffee and nutty oak. Lush, fat and sweet, with layered flavors of black raspberry and sweet oak. Quintessential Pride merlot, with strong fruit complemented but not overwhelmed by 100% new oak." (6/2004)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Merlot (a blend of Napa and Sonoma fruit) possesses a healthy dark ruby/purple col ...Read More »
