Benziger 1999 Merlot (Sonoma County)

Fans of ripe, forward fruit will like this wine. Opens with a burst of jammy plum and cassis and then explodes into fruit and berry sensations on the palate, but it's classically dry. Soft tannins and acids support all these luscious flavors. The finish is really long and spicy.
