Private Selection Aged in Rum Barrels Monterey County Merlot 2018

This one was a gift. I don't think I would have reached for it myself as it seems like a gimmick, but I'm glad I'm trying this. The nose is all blueberry... That first sip pours it on again. It's a whole field of blueberries here on the palate. This merlot style is as if a delicate California Petite Sirah grew a pair. It feels muscular thanks to the tannic profile here, but it's by no means a monster either. Vanilla is featuring here. It gets interesting again on the finish as I get a quick flash of molasses presumably from the rum then back to a decent length of that blueberry. — 7 days ago

Maestro Napa Valley Red Blend 2018

Needs lots more time, years in fact. Lovely blend, VERY Bordeaux like in flavor profile but with the classic Napa edge. Buy it and leave it alone until it hits 7-10 years old. — 23 days ago

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

9.3

I had a glass at pop and pour to see where this was…the aromatics (roasted/muddled ripe raspberries and black cherries, currant, graphite, herbal spice), front and mid palate (fig, dark cocoa dusted dates, soft ripe red and black fruits) were excellent but the finish really showed it’s 15.5ABV…like a heat seeking missle. After re-corking and coming back to it 5-6hrs later, it had softened and integrated a bit as the finish seemed to dial in the flavors. The acidity was still very nice and while the tannins are softening, it’s got good grip. The alcohol has me wondering how this will hold up in the long term, but it’s drinking now if you can give it a few hours of air. — 21 days ago

Wow! 15.5 in a 2006?! A bit surprised to see that, but maybe it’s not unusual.

I’ve had so many $100+ bottles that were so very disappointing. Yet here is a $30 merlot that is so immensely enjoyable. I’m loving every sip! — a month ago
