93pointsGrieve 2012 Merlot (Napa Valley)

Grapes for this 100% varietal wine—the family's first estate Merlot under this name—are grown on the Grieve Family Vineyard in Lovall Valley, just above cool Carneros. Concentrated and showing integrated oak, it reveals cedar and dried herb around subtle fruit components of plum and cassis. It finishes soft and balanced in a flurry of cocoa. Virginie Boone
