Dry Creek Vineyard 1999 Merlot (Sonoma County)

This is an example of wonderful winemaking on fruit that's been spread too thin. It has splendid tannins, wonderfully supportive acidity and a fine overlay of spicy, toasty oak, but the fruit has been diluted, possibly due to overcropping. The blackberry flavors are thin and watered down. —S.H.
