Chateau St. Jean 2002 Reserve Merlot (Sonoma County)

At about five years of age, this dramatic Merlot is just coming into its own, and there aren't many Merlots you can say that about. Its tannins are just beginning to melt. As that astringent tide recedes, a beach of pure cherries and blackberries emerges, deep and dry and spicy. Probably at its best now and for a year or two.
