Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Product #32470 (In Stock)
Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015 Leese-Fitch Merlot 2015

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

The Fableist Merlot 2015 Product #32152 (In Stock)
The Fableist Merlot 2015 The Fableist Merlot 2015

"Paso" and "Merlot" don't often show up together, but the combination certainly works here!  The ripe Merlot fruit and 45% new French oak give the wine a sensuous plumpness and depth and lots of dark, plummy, fruit.  10% Cabernet Sauvignon adds some red currant, herb and a touch of structure on the long, very smooth, finish.  Delicious all by itself and better still with roasted or grilled beef tenderloin!

Textbook Merlot Napa 2015 Product #32503 (In Stock)
Textbook Merlot Napa 2015 Textbook Merlot Napa 2015

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!

Guicciardini La Historia Di Italia Toscana 2013 Product #32812 (In Stock)
Guicciardini La Historia Di Italia Toscana 2013 Guicciardini La Historia Di Italia Toscana 2013

100% Merlot from the hills around Florence made by Ferdinando Guicciardini of Castello di Poppiano.  The style and overall impression is what I'd call "restrained modern" - plenty of power and ripeness but still definitely an Italian wine.  Aromas of blackcurrant, smoke and spice lead to a rich, ripe, mouthfull of currant, coffee, black raspberry, and smoke flavors.  The texture is pure velvet in the middle but with juicy acidity front and back and fine, powerful, tannins.  Smoke, currant, licorice, and mocha flavors linger nicely.

The mouthful of a name - Guicciardini La Historia Di Italia - is a nod to the winemaker's ancestor, Francesco Guicciardini, whose Historia di Italia covering 1490 - 1534 is considered a pioneering work of modern methodology and one of the great works of the Rennaisance.  The book transformed ideas about how history should be done, much as Ferdinando Guicciardini hopes this wine will shake up winemaking around Florence!

"A bright, elegant style, boasting cherry, earth and tar notes. A light dusting of tannins marks the lingering finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2019."Wine Spectator 89 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
