De Loach 1999 Estate Bottled Merlot (Russian River Valley)

Inland warmth teased out red and black raspberry flavors in these grapes. Ocean fog and chill not only kept acids bright, but held down ripening, yielding earthier notes of tobacco and garden herbs. The complex balance is terrific. Oak adds just the right notes.
