Keswick Monticello Merlot – 2009 – 9.1 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

Dense and well developed tannins; proof of a very nice and well balanced Merlot.  I was thinking it would be a lite style—instead this was proof positive of a Napa or even Bordeaux style Merlot.  Confit of blueberry, blackberry, chocolate, fennel, smoke and white mushroom.

¡Salud!
