X Winery Merlot Napa Valley 2004

External Review by Sam's Wine:

"From its amazing alcohol content- 15.6 percent according to the winery's website- to its lush, plush texture and its gushing juicy, fleshy, meaty incredibly ripe cassis and black cherry flavors, this sleek merlot has California written all over it. And yet it doesn't convey the impression of a wine carried to extremes. It is certainly wonderfully there, yet for all its extravagance it flaunts its exquisite and risky valance with a kiss and a toss of its head; for all is seductive details of spice and lavender and potpourri, it counts on a sizable component of velvety tannins and polished minerals to keep it honest."
