2008 Merlot Wine Reviews
2008 100% Merlot scores 93 Points twice!
Credit the Merlot for sheer enjoyability. It defines Merlot as the soft, drink-me-now Bordeaux red wine, full-bodied yet instantly likeable. Made from 100% Merlot. It's extraordinarily rich in cherry fruit while 100% new French oak adds a deft touch of buttered toast. The tannins are gently, sweet and complex. This flashy, fleshy wine is great now, and will hold and evolve in the bottle for at least six years.

93 Points, GOLD MEDAL - "Exceptional"
Deep garnet violet color. Rich aromas of plum sauce, white chocolate fudge and pepper with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and savory touch of grilled pepper, toasty praline, caramelized yams, and forest floor on the long finish. Nicely polished merlot that will shine at the table.
