A fantastic top Napa Merlot from Arietta and former Screaming Eagle winemaker Andy Erickson. Limited. 94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2014 Merlot Hudson Vineyards is gorgeous. Surprisingly, it is also richer, deeper and more pedigreed than the Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage. Exquisitely layered and supple, the 2014 possesses striking depth to match its creamy, inviting personality. Layers of plum, black cherry and mocha build into the supple, inviting finish. Naturally the 2014 is quite young. It can be enjoyed today, but readers who appreciate the complexity that develops only in bottle will have to be patient."
Tightly wound, but approachable. Lovely merlot which requires patience. But impressive already. Love this example.
