Food Pairings for T-Vine Merlot Napa Valley
External Reviews for T-Vine Merlot Napa Valley
Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. There is nothing especially subtle about this flashy and very out-going wine, and finesse is not one of its strengths, but it offers up lots of optimally ripe cherry-like fruit with overtones of black-berries and plenty of sweet oak. It is full and fleshy in feel with a bit of pert, balancing acid checking its drift to sweetness, and, if not at all astringent, it claims just enough tannin to make a few years of aging worthwhile.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
