Food Pairings for Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Beckstoffer Vineyard X
Dark purple, somewhat murky, in the glass. Woody on the nose. Seems fairly medium-bodied on the tip of the tongue. Then some minty, berry flavors come out. Noticeable tartness that has diminished in the 30 minutes since I opened this. Kind of an olive-flavored thing on the finish. US$59.99 at WIne Club in Santa Ana in 2004. (Amendment on 12/6/12) The original comments were written shortly after opening the bottle. After about 90 minutes of air the wine rounded out very nicely--fruit, acid and tannin integrated into an excellent wine experience. I am upgrading my original rating to 4.5 glasses.
Aged 20 months in French Oak.
