Graeser Merlot Two Dog Vineyard 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Recommendation: Graeser 2002 Merlot, Two Dog Vineyard Winemaker's Tasting Notes: The Two Dog Merlot is a dark ruby and purple wine with aromatic black cherry and dark chocolate nose. There is a nice richness, medium body with tons of cherry, currant fruit mixed with dark toasty oak. Extremely approachable wine now, it will age nicely for 3-5 years. Food Pairing: Dress up a hearty weeknight meal or serve it with your best steaks or roast meats, the Two Dog is perfect for both settings. Return to Graeser Winery Wine List

Acidic, with an impressive gob of tannins given its age. No fruit left, though, and an odd barnyard note on the aftertaste. Seems to have gone entirely wrong.

Vile and acidic. Redolent of glue.

Heavily tannic with little fruit and much acid. Had an odd glue-like note on the aftertaste.

Reprehensible. Avoid. Tastes of mold, wet newspapers and rotten fruit.
