Bilton 1999 Merlot (Stellenbosch)

A nose of flavorful, plummy fruit with clove accents pulls you right in to this winning medium-weight wine. The fruit reads rich and bright on the balanced, not-at-all-weighty palate, with its very smooth feel. Finishes with a long dance of ripe plum and sweet oak, a statement of fine fruit handsomely rendered that will drink well through 2005. —M.M.
