Nickel & Nickel Merlot Suscol Ranch Vineyard Napa Valley 2010

Member Review by vg822:

This wine is complete from front to finish, and its unique character offers a suppleness on the palate that few Merlots achieve. This wine’s distinctiveness lies in the lush, velvety tannins that expand from the initial sip and develop with richness through the finish.

This 2008 Suscol Merlot possesses all the natural juicy flavors of the vineyard with briary aromatics, dark plum and wild berry flavors, and a juicy impression upon entry. Layer upon layer of dust, earth, herb and cedar intermix with the fruit, creating a complex medley of flavors.

Dark plum and wild berry flavors combined with notes of earth and cedar make this one of the more balanced Merlots we've tried.
