Matanzas Creek 2006 Jackson Park Vineyard Merlot (Bennett Valley)

Tasted in January, this Merlot was still quite unresolved. Oak dominated, with its characteristic vanilla and caramel notes, while underneath was a substantial core of cherries, blackberries, currants, cocoa and roasted almonds, reminiscent of a granola bar. It's a distinguished Merlot, but one that wants a few years in the cellar.
