Bruce Wayne Merlot Blend Napa Valley Ella's Blend 2005

Member Review by jasonkauf:

Had the '06. Very very oaky, but think the oak was dragging the fruit on a bit here. Finish fell fairly flat, even though midpalate felt like it was going to open up a little. Tannins were harsher than what I would have liked. May come back after I've let it open up to see if it takes a better turn.

Not a lot of depth to this wine, but the strong oakiness of the bouquet and the attack were terrific. It had mild tannins and a weak finish, but it was very drinkable with flavorful foods. A note at the shop where I bought it recommended pairing it with grilled foods, so I drank it with grilled steak and sweet potatoes and that worked out well. I did lose a bit of the sweetness of the maple-glazed sweet potatoes, and mashed potatoes probably would have been a better fit, but I would look forward to having that whole meal again, regardless.
