87 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013

Good dark red.  Plum, mocha, tobacco and nutty oak plus a hint of raisin on the rather low-toned nose.  Quite sweet in the mouth, but with good supporting acidity to the very ripe plum and redcurrant flavors.  This fat, lightly saline merlot is more serious than the 2010 version but less candied and spicy.

Merlot

Merlot enjoyed a surge in popularity in the 1990s as consumers suddenly discovered that they could enjoy aromas and flavors similar to those of Cabernet in a fleshier, softer wine with smoother tannins. A wave of Merlot plantings followed, frequently in soils and microclimates completely inappropriate for this variety, and the market was soon...
