Jarvis 2009 Estate Grown Merlot (Napa Valley)

Made using grapes grown in Jarvis's mountain vineyard, this is a strongly flavored Merlot. It's brilliant and intense, with flavors of red cherry pie, red licorice, grilled Canadian bacon and sandalwood. The tannic structure is a joy—soft, furry and complex. There's lots of oak, too, which lends a smoky edge. Probably at its best now, so drink up.
