Longboard 2010 Dakine Vineyard Merlot (Russian River Valley)

Editors' Choice

This Merlot, grown in prime Pinot Noir country in the northwestern Russian River Valley, shows bright black cherry, red currant and mocha flavors. It's distinguished by its balanced complexity. There's a mushroom earthiness that adds richness, while the acid-tannin balance is near perfect. A portion of new oak barrels brings a touch of smoke. This is Longboard's best Merlot since 2006.
