Thumbprint Cellars Merlot Reserve Schneider Vyd. Dry Creek Valley 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The 2005 Thumbprint Reserve Merlot is 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard in the western ridge of Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. The grapes were harvested particularly late in the season and reached an exceptional degree of ripness. After a 10 day cold soaking the wine fermented slowly and then was aged in French oak barrels. This ia a wine for big red lovers. It's velvety textured with ripe berry and dark chocolate notes, and a lingering finish. It's very limited as only 800 cases of this winning Reserve California wine were produced. <small>Terms & Conditions : Pay only $0.99 per bottle Standard UPS Ground Shipping on Thumbprint Merlot Reserve, Schneider Vyd, Dry Creek Valley.
