Blackstone 1997 Merlot (Napa Valley)

If the pronounced oak becomes integrated down the road, this will prove to be a good value because there's a lot of blackberry and some chocolate flavors. It bites a bit from the 14.1% alcohol, but there's enough acidity to carry the wine. Hold for a year to see where it goes.
