Fielding Hills 2004 Merlot (Wahluke Slope)

Ripe, tangy berries, consistent with the house style—a tight spine of firm tannin and bright acid. There's a good meaty quality in the midpalate, and plenty of vanilla. I think there is a lot of compact flavor in hiding, right now it's showing a lot of spice (from the 12% Syrah blended in?) and vanilla (from the barrel). Paul Gregutt
