External Reviews for Cuvaison Napa Merlot

11/12/2010

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. This wine is contradiction unto itself. You see the words, 14.5% alcohol, stated clearly on the label, and realize that your tasting notes that describe the wine as lean, green and acidy just do not seem to fit. So, you go back to the wine, now that it is sits open on the table, and retaste it. "Cuvaison"? Check. "14.5%?" Yes. "Lean, green, acidic and yet full-bodied and smoothed by its early glycerin?" You betcha.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
