White Oak 2000 Merlot (Alexander Valley)

From a small estate vineyard, a dark purple wine that stains the glass. This visual clue suggests the density of the extract, but can't convey the soft, hedonistic tannins. It's austere now, the farthest thing from a fruit bomb, suggesting earth, tart berry skins and herbs. Doesn't have the stuffing for the long haul, but is so well structured, it would be perfect with a rack of lamb.
