Fielding Hills 2005 Merlot (Wahluke Slope)

Editors' Choice

Fragrant and rich, right from the top, this expressive Merlot hits 15+% alcohol, but retains its supple, muscular structure. The lush cherry fruit is wrapped in a midpalate of cured meats, bacon fat and buttery oak, but is substantial enough to flesh it out. Smooth, chocolaty and seamless, this could pass for a Napa Valley Merlot costing three times as much. Paul Gregutt
