Merryvale Merlot United States 2007
First glass PNV - big mistak: very hot, acid and alcohol overpowered everything else. Second glass day 2: settled down a lot: good mix of dark fruits with cherry cola, spices, subtle toasted oak; long spicy/aromatic finish. Acid still very bright. While tannins are smooth, I think this wine will still improve with more time. Over all very nice Merlot!
