White Oak 2000 Merlot (Napa Valley)

One sniff warns you there's a great deal of unripe fruit here. Smells like broken green twigs and celery, and tasting confirms this impression of mint and green tea, although if you try, you can find some blackberries. It's increasingly evident the vintage was vegetal for some reds. This was one of them.
