Parducci Small Lot Merlot 2011
Editorial Reviews for Parducci Small Lot Merlot
Bright and fresh on the nose with aromas that tend toward the lightly earthy and raw woody end of the spectrum, with a little cigar box, cocoa and a blade of grass as accents. Medium-bodied and rather well integrated in the mouth, even if the acidity is prominent and the wood tannins emerge slightly raspy on the back end. There’s a nice kernel of red cherry and plum fruit here, with plenty of wood-induced spice adding detail. The finish is fairly short and abrupt with some woody tannin lingering on the palate. 84pts
