Baldacci IV Sons Carneros Merlot – 2002 – 9.4 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Baldacci a small producer of wines quartered on Silverado Trail.  I was wandering on the famed Silverado Trail– I had passed this very small winery–you could pass this place easily but I was determined to go to a new winery and eager to make a discovery.

Carneros does produce remarkable fruit.  This Merlot is rich with extra silky tannins; cedar, bramble, truffle honey, chocolate, and simmering spice.  I wish I had purchased more bottles.  A most splendid purchase.
