Hasn't evolved much since the last time I tasted it. Tannin is still showing but promise is there. Think it needs at least another year or an hour of decanting to really show.

Dark purple with dull purple edges. Vanilla and concord grape nose. Blackberry, raspberry, slight fig, with tar and tobacco. Far less sweet than the nose would suggest. Flat, brambly, slight chlorine taste on the back of the tongue, with a dry not-quite-licorice finish.

Ruby. Chocolate, spicy nose. Very well balanced wine with lush tannins, subtle oak and fantastic finish. I love Phelps' wine. Drank for my birthday. May have been aged a bit too long. Not much tannins left.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Merlot is layered with aromas and flavors of blackberry, red plum, tobacco, anise and cedar, which lead the way to a delicate tannin structure and velvety finish.
