Leese-fitch Merlot 2014 Product #30388 (In Stock)
Leese-fitch Merlot 2014 Leese-fitch Merlot 2014


Dark ruby in color, this Merlot showcases aromas of muddled blackberry with thyme, vanilla, plum preserves, and savory notes of toasted rye bread. The flavors start with jammy blackberry, caramelized vanilla, molasses, and black cherry notes with hints of Herbs du Provence. As the flavors start to evolve and linger on the finish, bright pomegranate, tart plum, American Oak vanilla nuances, and black currants come forth on the palate. Winery Notes

Recanati Merlot Galilee 2014 Product #31896 (In Stock)

KOSHER FOR PASSOVER. Another fine release from this excellent estate in Galilee.

"Inky redviolet to the eye, this wine has a nose of chocolate covered espresso bean, cherry and raspberry. Restrained tannins provide a backdrop for flavors of black cherry, mocha, raspberry, and mint. There is a good balance of fruit and cooling herb flavors, while berry flavors hold their own and linger on the palate through the mint-heavy finish."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Textbook Merlot Napa 2014 Product #31670 (In Stock)
Textbook Merlot Napa 2014 Textbook Merlot Napa 2014

The name says it well here in this excellent, classically styled, Napa Merlot.  Spicy red currant and smoke aromas lead to a nicely rich mouthful of blackberry and black currant fruit with accents of spice and smoke.  A dash of Cabernet adds complexity. Full and fleshy with a smooth, food-friendly, finish leaving just a hint of tobacco and oak spice lingering.  Textbook Merlot indeed!

Mayacamas Vineyards Merlot Napa 2010 Product #30517 (In Stock)
Mayacamas Vineyards Merlot Napa 2010 Mayacamas Vineyards Merlot Napa 2010

Oh, so THIS is why folks used to get excited about Napa Merlot!  There's already some maturity to the aromas, with lots of redcurrant, cured tobacco, rose petal, cedar and spice notes that reprise on the elegant, silky, palate and linger long and sweet on the finish.  Just 13.5% abv, perfectly ripe, and utterly compelling, this tastes as much like mature Bordeaux or old Rioja as anything else. Very exciting.

Shafer Merlot Napa 2014 Product #31704 (In Stock)
Shafer Merlot Napa 2014 Shafer Merlot Napa 2014

A Napa classic!

"Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots. The 2014 Merlot includes 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and is a beauty. Mocha and chocolaty notes intermixed with red cherry, plum and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this perfumed and fragrant style of Merlot. It is medium to full-bodied, exceptionally pure and rich and should drink beautifully over the next 10-12 years of life."Wine Advocate 92 points

Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Product #31650 (In Stock)
Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013 Casaloste Inversus Toscana IGT 2013

One of owner/winemaker Giovanni d'Orsi's sons suffers from a rare congenital condition called Situs Inversus, in which major organs are inverted, or lie on the opposite side of the body from normal. Giovanni created this wine to honor his son (his fingerprint is on the label) by "inverting" the wine's blend.  Where his normal Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, Inversus is 90% rich, dense, rich, Merlot plus 10% vivid, mouthwatering, Sangiovese, all aged 16 months in 30% new French oak.  Pomerol from Bordeaux - think mouthfilling velvet.  Layers of dark plum, black raspberry, and succulent currant fruit are framed by sweet and sophisticated oak spice.  It’s a bit tight today, but the finish is already a thing of beauty, dry and pure with supple and ripe tannins.  Decant it for an hour now if you like, but it will be best from 2018-2028.

"Lots of spicy, intense and focused blackberry, tea leaf and mushroom character here. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Richer style but characterful. Let it mellow for a year or two. Made from organically grown grapes."  James Suckling 93 points
