2014 Gundlach Bundschu Estate Sonoma County Merlot (Previously $30)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "0 This stellar, gracefully understated Merlot is bolstered by small additions of four other red Bordeaux varieties. It opens with a fresh tropical note that's unexpectedly bright and slowly unwinds to reveal threads of plum, cinnamon, mocha and espresso bean flavor." (8/2017)

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 »

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) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Richly textured, round and supple, this is a simple merlot with generous fruit that’s ripe but not raisined. It finishes firm, with a dark berry perfume. For a steak." (12/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot from Napa is a delicious, solidly constructed 100% Merlot that sel ...Read More »

Youthful but will age. 95% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec." (5/2018) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine explodes with aromas of cinnamon stick and oak.

Plush, velvety and seamless, offering modest depth but good mouth coverage to its black cherry, dark chocolate, menthol and licorice flavors. Finishes with dusty tannins and modest length. A very easygoing Merlot with good texture and fruit. (ST)" (10/2017) Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of plum and blue fruit are accented by high-toned spices and milk chocolate.

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.

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 Swanson Napa Valley Merlot

Winemaker's Notes: "Grapes were sourced from the Swanson family estate, as well as vineyards that lie on the western bench of the Oakville AVA. Loose gravels provide excellent drainage, which combined with meticulous farming, gives perfect grapes. The spacing and trellis system of these vineyards means that even in the hottest months, the delicate grapes are protected from the sun, ensuring lush flavors and ripe tannins. In the glass, our 2015 Napa Valley Merlot offers intense aromas of plum, crushed red fruits and dried oregano, developing into more fl... Read More »

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Whitehall Lane’s 2014 Merlot is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and spent 19 months in a combination of 30% new French and American cooperage.

2015 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

Connoisseurs Guide: "From its first scents of ripe cherries, cassis, cola and cream, all the way through to its mildly tannic finish, this well-crafted offering is surprisingly mannerly given its tender years. It is moderately full-bodied and tends slightly to softness while showing a steady presence of nicely defined varietal fruit and avoiding the astringency that is common to young Cabernet. Its late-arriving touch of bitterness will be made unnoticeable when it is poured with food, and it is wine that comes without great need of age." (4/2018)

James Suckling: "Kirsch, red berries, dried leaves and tobacco on the nose. Quite a lot of ripe fruit, but it's framed in a sheen of acidity and some ripe tannins. Drink now." (5/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 77% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Merlot Napa Valley has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and gives up warm plums, spice cake and vanilla pod notions with an earthy undercurrent. Medium-bodied, plush and with plenty of uncomplicated juicy fruit, this is pure comfort wine! (LPB)" (10/2017)

2015 Plumpjack Napa Valley Merlot

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.

2013 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Merlot

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 sweet, intensely floral, Pinot-inflected bouquet melds into small red berries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices.

It is a strong effort for this vintage, and should drink nicely for another 5-7 years.
