Wente 2006 Small Lot Merlot (Arroyo Seco)

A beautiful Merlot, Wente's best in at least a decade. It's not one of those big, superripe Napa Merlots, but instead is elegant and classically balanced, almost Bordeaux in style, with rich tannins and good acidity. There's an herbal touch to the black cherry and mineral flavors. Very fine, very appealing, and a natural companion for food. Now–2012.
