Fidelitas 2005 Red Mountain Vineyard Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is the second single-vineyard, pure Merlot offering from Fidélitas in 2005, and the better bottle. This one needs some breathing time, as it brings the classic Red Mountain stoniness to bear. It's all about structure, balancing tart red fruits on layers of graphite and mineral, with dry, austere tannins. It's rare to find an unblended Merlot with this much muscle. Paul Gregutt
