86pointsNewton 2002 Unfiltered Merlot (Napa Valley)

I wish there were more fruity concentration here, because the individual parts are quite good. There's beautifully ripe, sweet tannins, fine acidity, polished smoky oak, and pretty cherry, plum and violet flavors that could use a boost in the middle palate through the finish.
