Thomas Fogarty 1998 Merlot (Santa Cruz Mountains)

The media has dissed this vintage, but here's a wine that makes lemonade from lemons. It's not a blockbuster and the fruit is sparse, but the winemaking is fine. It tastes elegant and upscale, a sleek, fairly tannic and acidic wine that possesses the ineffable quality of taste.
