Nitty Gritty 2011 Merlot (Napa Valley)

Don't be too quick to dismiss this wine as thin. It's the polar opposite of those ubiquitously jammy, chocolaty wines. Instead, it's moderately low in alcohol and rather severe, with notable acidity, and the fruit is subtle, compounded with green herbs and tobacco. The dryness and complexity make it worth repeated interest.
