Rombauer Vineyards Carneros Merlot 2012

$32

  New release of Rombauer Merlot! Enticing and lively red color; beautifully aromatic with black cherry and ripe plum. On the palate a purity of blackcurrant, cedar and mint flavors blend together seamlessly. Soft and supple, this wine has a medium-bodied mouth-feel with plush tannins that integrate with the generous finish.  The Carneros region with its climate and clay soils allows us to produce a Merlot which is true to the varietal’s characteristics. The longer growing season allows the fruit to reach maturity slowly, giving us fruit which is soft and elegant, yet rich and full flavored.

Raspberry preserves, blackberry, currant, mossy earth, dried sage, plum, oak and hints of licorice. Great structure and well-integrated tannins.

Updating some quick tasting notes from my Napa trip a few weeks ago: Are there better merlots? Yes. At this price point? Not that I've found. Enjoyable and easy wine to drink.

Juguete de picina/ costillas adobadas. Sabor obscure bien para los lados y bien dulce pero en lo oscuro. Super similar a cabernet. El corcho tenia vino puede haber afectado. Chilling pero nada memorabelistico. Iffy
