St. Francis 1999 Behler Reserve Merlot (Sonoma Valley)

Very young and tannic, and not showing its best at the time of tasting. Aromas of spiced plum, dried herbs and oak, and those powerful tannins numb the palate and plaster over the fruit. Try decanting for a few hours, or better yet, drink after 2008.
