Waters Crest 2004 Private Reserve Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

Despite struggling with some white wines, Jim Waters has hit a home run with this reserve Merlot. A light grapey color hides a complex array of blueberry, pie crust, mushroom, rubber, mint and even sausage aromas. Young and vibrant, with ripe tannins and good acidic backing, there is plenty of wood which needs another year to integrate. Underneath is grapey fruit and mushroom, finishing solidly with graham cracker.
