Wine Spectator: "A mix of some sharp edges and complex flavors, with strong shoe leather (freshly polished), herb, bell pepper and a touch of earthy currant, olive and cedar. Finishes with muscular tannins, so it's best to cellar short term. (JL)" (07/2002) K&L Notes: This 100% Merlot is rich, full and concentrated with a lush texture, cedar hints and black cherries. This wine is excellent with lamb, beef or any other red meat dish.

Vinous: "The 2016 Merlot (Napa Valley) is a very pretty, gracious wine from Keenan. Medium in body and nicely lifted, the 2016 will drink well right out of the gate. Attractive floral and spiced notes add to the wine's gracious, lilting personality. (AG)" (12/2018)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, red- and blackcurrants and dark chocolate on the nose, plus hints of mint and green tobacco. Juicy, fruit-driven flavors of dark berries and cocoa powder, complicated by a whiff of meat. Offers classic '97 texture and sweetness. Ripe acids carry the fruit.

Full body and ultra-fine tannins that are so polished and integrated they become seamless and incredibly beautiful. Long and flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Long life ahead but who can wait?" (05/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot Roberta’s Reserve, composed of 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, has a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of warm plums, baked blackberries and blueberry pie with suggestions of s...

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Taking its accustomed place among the very best Merlots of the vintage, Duckhorn’s iconic Three Palms bottling is, once again, a near-succulent effort that is generously appointed with beautifully focused, optimally ripened, black cherries, but deep fruit is only one part of its appeal, and its layered, sweet oak and loamy soil complexities along with its impeccable structure and balance impart a degree of seriousness that separates it from the pack. While so rich as to tempt early drinking, this is a cellar-worthy Merlot t...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Merlot Estate is a special selection of 100% Merlot from the Monte Bello vineyard and is a "second" wine as these grapes don't usually make it into the Monte Bello. It was aged for 18 months in 100% new American oak. "I wanted to bottle this wine with supple tannins, finesse and early drinkability," Eric Baugher says. "It comes from a single parcel down in the fog where the nights are extremely cool, giving Merlot with good tannic structure and acid backbone. The 2016 Merlot Estate Monte Bello Vineyard is med...

97 points Vinous: "Kapcsandy's 2009 Roberta's Reserve is one of the most polished and refined wines of the vintage by a mile. A core of insistent minerality layered with sweet floral notes form the backbone as this delineated, vibrant wine continues to open up beautifully in the glass. The 2009 Roberta's is all about finesse. The overall sensation is one of total seamlessness and silkiness. At the same time, there is more than enough tension and sheer power for the 2009 to drink beautifully for years. The 2009 Roberta's is 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Fran...

98 points James Suckling: "This is a superb merlot with black olive, blueberry, iodine, and oyster shell. Full body, tight tannins. Chocolate, walnut, and bramble berry. Superb finish. A beauty. Try now but give it four to five years of bottle age. Decant before serving now."

Winery notes: The 2017 Merlot opens with dusty aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, vanilla and toasted oak. A soft, rounded texture delivers mouthfilling flavors of blueberry, blackberry, cinnamon, dark chocolate and cola. Velvety tannins are finely integrated into a rich, chewy finish. The wine is aged in a combination of French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels, 25% of which are new. A small lot of Zinfandel (7%) was incorporated into the final blend to amplify mid-palate fruitiness. Recommended pairings include beef tenderloin, pasta with lamb r...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much more luxurious, voluptuous and in-your-face is the 2010 Roberta’s Reserve, which is a typical blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with 14.5% alcohol. It boasts a saturated ruby/purple color along with lots of Asian plum sauce, white chocolate, kirsch and a subtle smoky note. With superb richness and a full-bodied mouthfeel, despite its tannic framework it can be drunk in several years or cellared for several decades. (RP)" (10/2013) 95 points Vinous: "Full medium ruby.

Hold on to your chair… this is a killer Merlot! Sweet vanilla, plums, clove, orange peel, hints of menthol. A sexy, voluptuous and silky wine with sweet cherry fruit and a long lasting finish. Delectus is another fabulous but tiny Napa Valley producer (only 288 cases of this Merlot were made). They were recently featured in the Wine Spectator's 'Promising New Names Worth Watching' section, although they're not as new to the game as you might think from reading that article. Winemaker Gerhard Reisacher previously worked for seven years as enologist a...

Wine Spectator: "Smooth and polished, with anise, herb, cherry and currant flavors, picking up a touch of mineral and earthiness.--California Merlot retrospective." (10/2000) K&L Notes: 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 much of their energy to Merlot as a stand-alone wine, not just as a blending grape. Before the "Merlot boom" of the 1990s, Duckhorn was one of the few California producers that were bringi...

PlumpJack Winery, founded by then California Governor Gavin Newsom and composer/philanthropist Gordon Getty, sits squarely in the heart of Napa Valley's renowned Oakville region, surrounded by a 42-acre estate vineyard highly-regarded for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon. Both the winery building and the vineyard date back to the 1880s, when winemaking pioneers first took advantage of a unique position on the valley floor.

Wine Spectator: "Juicy, with up-front red fruit and berry flavors, featuring green herbal accents on the crunchy finish. (KM, Web Only-2020)" 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 end of Napa and Sono...

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "A rich, well-ripened and most successful companion to the wine above, this bottling is another explicit Merlot that is very long on both fruit and lavish oak. While slightly supple in feel, it is firmed by a solid spine of tannin, and its fleshy beginnings are supplanted by a jolt of toughness later on. The message here, perhaps even more than in the Estate bottling, is that aging will be required for the wine to reach it best, and half a dozen years of patience will be rewarded."

Bid on this 9-bottle lot of 2006 Bink "Hawks Butte Vineyard" Yorkville Highlands Merlot. Here is a balanced, sophisticated Merlot worth trying. The Hawke's Butte Vineyard is located on a series of benches and hillsides at the base of Hawks Butte in Mendocino county, at an elevation of approximately 1200 feet above sea level, thirty five miles from the Pacific ocean. Hot summer days and cool nights, tempered by coastal breezes combine with the land's rocky, high-draining soils to produce low yields of intense, structured Merlot. Sustainably grown and aged for twenty-two months in neutral and new (30%) artisan French oak barrels (Vicard and Saury) the 2006 Bink "Hawks Butte Vineyard" Merlot offers an intense nose of ripe blue and red fruits, with earthy mineral undertones and accents of cocoa and baking spices from the aritsan French oak. It exhibits excellent concentration and a dry, lingering finish.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Duckhorn "Three Palms Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot (93CG, 92WE, 92WS). Connoisseurs Guide: "This very deep and involving wine is definitively Merlot in its unwavering focus on concentrated black cherries, yet it is far more than simply fruity and reveals lovely, sweet oak support with gentle notes of fresh loam. It has plenty of weight but is carefully constructed and matches richness with considerable refinement, and, if it progressively firms and tightens a touch as it crosses the palate, it exhibits remarkable stamina and fruity strength. It serves to remind that top-flight Merlot deserves a special place in the cellar, and it takes its accustomed position among those at the head of the varietal class. *Two Stars*" (04/2017)
