The Full Review

This is one elegant American Merlot. Maybe one of the most elegant i’ve tasted. But it’s not ready. Mayacamas has made an age-worthy Merlot and I’m dancing in my seat as I type this. In a year or two this wine is going to be silky and medium bodied with blueberry and soft vanilla on the nose. It is going to have a seamless tannin structure with lively acidity to lift off the palate. In a year or so buy the best lamb you can find, grill it up, and pop this with close friends.
