Rustic Merlot - Great Change of Pace for Napa - Chad's best value to date
by Pizarro14005221
Garnet, medium body, big black cassis with feldspathic loam, hints of leather and eucalyptus, extremely faint red plum. Body is SO smooth; piled red cassis velour and some decently structured oak and light, dried woody cooking spice. Finish is long, rustic, dusty, mostly dry and just the most silky dark cassis in any bottle I have ever had, faint vanilla and nutmeg notes. This is a BIG thumbs up. Chad's best offering to date.
A great value

Delightfully surprised

Soft, smooth, almost velvety, but still clean. What Merlots were before everyboddy decided the knew how to make them. Nice value. Would rate it 4.5 stars if I could.
