Monthly WTF group. Theme this month was merlot. All wines tasted blind. I called this 2012-2014 Napa merlot. Very balanced. Chalky tannins. Red, blue and black fruit. Aside from the Pedestal, I got more chocolate and dates here than the others. It wasn’t exuberant nor shy, just a nice “down the middle” wine. Thanks @Bill Makens

Pnp. Wife thought this was a cab. More tannic and oaky like a cab. Black fruits, cedar, and a touch of smoke on the palate. Still tannic and def needs a few more years.

Had in Aruba. A little corky or Oakey. Maybe the trip to Aruba did it no favors.

2012-Needs a while to open up, then nice bouquet, great legs, medium body and finish; worth revisiting.
