96pointsGrassini 2016 Estate Grown and Bottled Merlot (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)

Editors' Choice

There's something special with this family vineyard that makes the Merlot utterly delicious each vintage. Aromas of black cherry, charred meat, marjoram and vanilla blend harmoniously on the nose. The palate coalesces around more black cherry, star anise, vanilla and clove, wrapped in just enough tannic structure. Matt Kettmann
