Ridge Merlot Estate 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The first Ridge Estate Merlot since 1997. Big, black and fruity on the nose with a nice toasty top note and spicy accents. Smooth and plump in the mouth, but not at all soft. This shows an early hint of caramel followed on the palate by lovely plummy fruit that’s supported by notably bright acidity and rich, slightly chewy tannins. A Merlot to age, at least for a little while. 89 points
