85pointsSpangler Vineyards 2004 Reserve Merlot (Southern Oregon)

This unquestionably is a bigger, darker, more concentrated wine than Spangler's regular Merlot. But is it markedly better? I picked up a slightly roasted, slightly burned character to the fruit, and once again, tannins that are thick and chalky. Hints of chocolate and tobacco stretch out the finish a bit, although the fruit goes away quickly. Paul Gregutt
