Jarvis 2010 Estate Grown Cave Fermented Reserve Merlot (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

As rich as Jarvis's regular 2010 Merlot is, the Reserve is even bigger. It is, in a word, massive, offering a nuclear detonation of cherries, currants and mocha, even something sweetly meaty, like the charred fat on steak. At this tender age, it lacks subtlety. But it's a complex, tannic wine that should develop well in the cellar. Give it 6–7 years.
