Rodney Strong 1998 Estate Vineyards Merlot (Alexander Valley)

At four-plus years, the tannins are resolved, although far from absent. Acidity is also high. Finally the wine is coming around, with spicy plum and cassis flavors, but it is teetering on the verge of old age already, and has an edge of senility.
