91pointsBeauregard 2014 Zayante Vineyard Merlot (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Light aromas of carnation and snappy black raspberry meet with the elegant touch of bay leaf on the nose of this cool-climate Merlot. Its grapes grow on a southwest-facing orientation, which is the only reason they get ripe at all. The palate's red-currant and cherry tones are overcome by herbal touches of bay, juniper and mint, wrapped in zesty acidity. Matt Kettmann
