89pointsVaraison 2015 Bin 3115 Estate Reserve Palisade Vineyard Merlot (Grand Valley)

Medium ruby with some transparency, there are spicy aromas of tart red currants, cozy Madagascar vanilla, black cherry, green chilis and a deep undercurrent of cigar box. With time in the glass, dried plum and raisin aromas emerge. It opens with flavors of rich ripe plum, tart black cherry, tobacco leaf and vanilla. The tannins give a gentle grip on the midpalate and linger lightly, turning spicy on the finish. Fiona Adams
