Merryvale has a very good track record with Merlot and the '05 is one of their better efforts in recent years. It's a tannic wine with quite a bit of astringency but that lends structure to the black currant flavors to which new oak adds a touch of smoky cigar box. This fine wine should age well for six years.

The 2005 Merryvale Merlot is aged for 18 months in one-third new (French) oak. It boasts a dark core with exceptional fruit on the nose (blackberry cherries and plums) with some toasty oak and chocolate. Soft and rich this wine shows what Napa Merlot can really achieve. This is drinking beautifully but should also prove to be an ageworthy effort.
