Rutherford Grove 2005 Estate Reserve Merlot (Howell Mountain)

Anyone who thinks Merlot is dead should taste this lovely wine. It's dry and firm in tannins and authoritative, with complex currant, violet, mocha, cedar and spice flavors set against a gorgeous overlay of smoky oak. Delicious now, and should age for six years or so.
