Brutocao 1998 Riserva d'Argento Merlot (Mendocino)

Very nice, very dry wine, and one that shows Mendocino's promise with this grape. Pronounced aromas of new French oak are sweet and smoky and full of char and vanilla, and complement a rich earthiness in the mouth. The wine is not too fruity but suggest blackberries. The tannins are dry and dusty and provide a chewy mouthfeel. —S.H.
