2015 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple in color and composed of 100% Merlot, the 2015 Merlot offers a plums, blackberries and dried flowers-scented nose with touches of mossy bark and garrigue. Showing good expression in the medium-bodied mouth with plenty of plumy fruit, it finishes long and spicy. (LPB)" (10/2017)

2016 Kapcsandy "Roberta’s Reserve - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another wine that flirts with perfection is the 100% Merlot 2016 Roberta's Reserve, which was harvested at the end of September and spent 20 months in 70% new barrels. I finished my note on this wine with "Best Merlot in the New World," and I can't think of another wine that comes close to the layered, balanced, majestic style of this beauty. Offering up a kaleidoscope of black cherries, damp earth, chocolate, cedarwood, and spring flowers, it's full-bodied and rich, yet just glides over the palate with a seamless, elegant, pure s ...

2014 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and rich-tasting, with finely interwoven flavors of dark cherry, plum tart and blackberry that are accented by cocoa powder notes. Asian spice accents fill the lush finish. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (11/2017) Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much centered on Merlot’s affable, red cherry fruit from the very first sniff and gaining volume and richness as it goes, this well-focused, moderately full-bodied effort gets high marks for its balance and careful making and is a very professional look at the grape.

1994 Matanzas Creek Sonoma Valley Merlot

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "So what's new? Matanzas Creek continues to turn out rich, concentrated Merlots that provide a reference point for what heights this grape can achieve in California. The 1994 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color, a flashy display of aromatics (chocolate, jammy red and black fruits, and vanilla), full body, loads of dense, thick, unctuously-textured flavors, low acidity, and a long, spicy, powerful finish. For its size, this wine keeps everything in perspective. (RP)" (04/1996) Wine Spectator: "Smooth and r ...

2015 Duckhorn "Three Palms Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

As it opens, generous helpings of blueberry and fig figure into the mix, adding to the complexity and memorability of the wine. Enjoy best 2025 through 2030. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (12/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful and rich-tasting, with a flush of red fruit flavors that quickly fill with sweet tobacco and sanguine notes.

1991 Matanzas Creek Sonoma Valley Merlot

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Both the 1991 and 1990 Merlots should turn out to be knock-out wines. Moreover, both wines should offer up to a decade's worth of hedonistic drinking. The 1991 reveals that tell-tale smoky, coffee, mocha nose that reminds me of one of my favorite flavors of ice cream from Baskin-Robbins - Jamocha Almond Fudge. In the mouth, the creamy texture, sweet ripe fruit, and lusciousness make for a delicious glass of wine. These top class Merlots remain the benchmark for this varietal in California.

2013 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Merlot

90 points Vinous: "Today, the Merlot is deep, dense and powerful, but it also drinks surprisingly well for the year. Dark cherry, mocha, plum, smoke, licorice, spice and French oak are all quite forward. Drink this plump, giving Merlot over the next handful of years. The 40% new French oak is a bit dominant today.

A generous tannin structure provides a framework for the ripe weight as the finish explores aspects of sweet tobacco. (VB)" (02/2019) Wine Spectator: "This stretches out nicely, with notes of sandalwood and Asian spice to the crushed red fruit flavors. Chocolate and cream details show on the finish.

2015 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

Drink or hold. " (05/2018) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are few truly profound Merlots being made in California, but Pahlmeyer has consistently made some of the best. I still have some that are 20+ years old and aging magnificently. I suspect that the last three vintages that they made were better than anything I bought 20+ years ago. The 20 ...

2016 Madson Wines Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot

Winemaker's Notes: "This Santa Cruz Mountain Red Blend comes from a single vineyard in Los Altos Hills. This vineyard lies at 800 ft elevation overlooking the Santa Clara Valley. Planted in 1981, the vineyard is steep and rustic with Franciscan Complex soils of basalt and schist. Warm days and cool nights help lengthen the ripening time and maintain fresh acidity. Once harvested, the Merlot (75%) was destemmed while the Cabernet Franc (25%) was left as intact, whole clusters. This is to promote bright fruit flavors and varietal complexity. The grapes fer ...

2001 Nickel & Nickel "Suscol Ranch" Napa Valley Merlot

The 2000 Merlot offers ripe flavors of dark plum and wild berry enhanced by underlying layers of herb and sweet oak. The unique character of this vineyard includes suppleness on the palate that few Merlots can offer. Its distinctiveness lies in the lush, velvety tannins that expand upon the initial sip and develop with richness through the finish. This evolution allows one to enjoy the wine today, yet also rewards those who choose to lay it down in the cellar.

2016 Plumpjack Napa Valley Merlot

94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Merlot is just as gorgeous from bottle as it was from barrel. Savory, aromatic and dense, the Merlot is a serious wine with a lot to offer. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, game, cedar and licorice all run through this super-expressive, nuanced Merlot. Time in the glass brings out a more floral, red-toned character in the fruit. The 2016 is a blend of Oak Knoll Merlot and Malbec from the estate.

2016 Emmolo Napa Valley Merlot

Jenny Wagner, youngest child of Chuck Wagner (of Caymus fame), is the winemaker at Emmolo, which is named after her mother Cheryl Emmolo. The Emmolo family too has a long history in Napa Valley. Great-grandfather Salvatore Emmolo started a grape rootstock nursery in Napa in 1923. His son Frank took over the nursery and planted Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot on the family property. Hence the two grape varietals grown and made by Emmolo. Winery tasting notes: "A dark rustic red, the 2016 vintage features rich, fragrant scents of blueberries, coffee beans, leat ...

2016 Frog's Leap Rutherford Merlot

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Hmm. Dry-farmed merlot in Napa Valley? John Williams and his team at Frog’s Leap grow some of the freshest, prettiest merlot in a region where the variety is mostly irrigated and taken to extremes of richness. They focus this wine on fruit from their estate vineyard surrounding the winery on the east side of Rutherford, where the cool clay soils near the Napa River provide shelter for the vine roots while the heat of the day ripens the fruit. One taste of this wine may have you wondering why more growers don’t follow their lead ...

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals an incredible perfume of kirsch, black plums, red currant jelly and red roses with touches of black tea, pencil shavings, cinnamon stick and underbrush plus wafts of black raspberries and crushed rocks.

2013 Nickel & Nickel "Suscol Ranch" Napa Valley Merlot

From the producer: "The nine-acre Suscol Ranch vineyard is located in Jamieson Canyon, south of the city of Napa. The area is very cool, with dense fog early in the season and windy conditions all year long. The vines are planted on a gentle, north-facing knoll of deep, loamy soil and are cordon trained to give the grapes maximum sun exposure. The cool conditions allow the fruit to mature slowly, gracefully developing flavors and mature tannins."

1998 Nickel & Nickel Suscol Ranch Napa Valley Merlot

The Suscol Ranch is located at the entrance to Jamieson Canyon south of the city of Napa. The vineyard was planted in 1991. Originally planted as Merlot to be used in the blend of the estate Cabernet Sauvignon, the quality was so high that it was one of the inspirations to create the Nickel & Nickel line. They appreciated the distinctiveness of this vineyard and thought that is warranted bottling as a stand-alone wine. Very limited!

1997 Robert Sinskey Los Carneros Merlot

The Carneros region is perfect for the early ripening Merlot grape. A long growing season, warm days and cool evenings are the perfect conditions to allow the Merlot grape to achieve optimal ripeness while maintaining mouth watering acidity. The Carneros climate helps the wine to develop rich flavors of bing cherry and blackberry with a touch of dried herb complexity and a texture that envelopes ones tongue. Perfect for full flavored cuisine. (K&L - Trey Beffa)
