Pedestal Merlot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

#11 of Wine Spectator Top 100 2012 "This red is round, generous and expressive, offering plum, loganberry, cherry and clove flavors that pick up hints of loam and floral character as the finish tightens its focus. Impressive for its length and deft balance. Best from 2013 through 2019...95" WS 11/12 "Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, melted licorice and minerals. Sweet, ripe and strong, with a distinctly sappy quality to its black cherry and sexy oak flavors. This struck me as more masculine than the 2008 version and every bit as fresh--and in need of longer bottle aging. Finishes classically dry and long, with solid backbone...92" IWC 11/12

I was expecting way more from this Merlot; I always get excited about trying a new wine but this one was a bit bitter, and that was surprising maybe because the ratings are high for this merlot.
