Tamarack Cellars Merlot 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Super fine aromatics of ink, cigar box, pencil lead, and iron are elegant and refined. This is a very seductive and sleek wine packed with super ripe tannins and lively acid that lends nice freshness to the woodsy blackberry fruit that shows a little earthy spice Finishing with superb focus and fine length, if a touch on the firm side with cutting little tannins, this has everything in place to evolve wonderfully over the medium term. 92pts
