Exnihilo Merlot 2006

Member Review by JenniferT:

A beautiful wine. Great fruit (cherry/berry) along with some more developed fruit notes (stewed or dried) and slight notes of candy, dark chocolate and cigar on the nose. Tannins are wonderfully supple and soft, perhaps due to the age (I didn't peg this as a merlot in blind tasting). However the long length that made me realize there's more tannin than I previously thought, it's just so well integrated ( I couldn't get "rid" of this wine easily by drinking water). Beautifully balanced with good acid typical to cool climate merlot.
