Ridge Crest Merlot Columbia Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The H3 Merlot opens with aromas of raspberries, black pepper and earthy tones which lead to flavors of chocolate covered cherries and plum preserves on the silky smooth palate. The flavors and aromas culminate in an intense - yet elegant - finish.

What a disappointment. Inky overly tannic. Tasted more like a cab but I wouldn't recommend it as a cab. No merlot smoothness. Only explanation was that it was corked? Too gun shy to try another bottle. It didn't smell like wet dog so I'm not sure it wasn't over hyped.
