Merlot, we can’t quit you. We met you in the 1990s and never stopped loving you.
And yes, wine’s like Clos Pegase’s Mitsuko’s Vineyard Merlot remind us of how much we love this varietal. The soft red berry fruit. The ravishing, savory, hunger-inducing aromas of black truffles. The incredibly easygoing mouthfeel. The perfumes of cocoa and leather.
Simply put, this wine is an extraordinary value for $25. It’s developing a lovely bottle bouquet that makes it a pleasure just to smell, let alone taste. Put this in a lineup of 2015 Pomerols or Saint-Emilions and watch the jaws drop, one by one.
A case ships free from Napa Valley! There will be a race for these cases.
