William Hill Estate 1999 Merlot (Napa Valley)

Usually a trusted producer of red wines, but this wine seems weak and diluted, even unripe. There are sharp green, minty aromas and flavors that are almost vegetal, and wipe out the blackberries. The wine is also thin on the palate and into the finish. From a good vintage, but with 24,000 cases, maybe they overcropped the vines.
