Aromas of spices, such as cloves, dark berries and some herbs. Full-bodied and layered with chewy tannins and a savory finish. Juicy and flavorful. Drink after 2024.

It builds nicely with time in the glass and shows the more pure, elegant, seamless profile of the vintage yet still brings plenty of fruit. It’s ideal for enjoying over the coming decade.

Veeder was aged for 22 months in oak, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notions of stewed plums, baked blackberries and sautéed herbs plus hints of beef drippings, cloves and pencil lead. Full-bodied, plush and decently generous, the finish delivers compelling black fruit layers with loads of freshness. 482 cases were made.- LPB

Tightly wound, pure and minerally, this is packed with vibrant, fine-textured dried red fruit and berry flavors. Forest floor notes lingers on the direct and powerfully structured finish. Drink now through 2026. 482 cases...   Tightly wound, pure and minerally, this is packed with vibrant, fine-textured dried red fruit and berry flavors.

The 2018 Merlot is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, leather and licorice ride a wave of huge tannins. The Merlot has a lot of character, but it is a mountain wine, and needs time to fully...   The 2018 Merlot is a powerful, tightly wound wine. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, leather and licorice ride a wave of huge tannins. The Merlot has a lot of character, but it is a mountain wine, and needs time to fully come together. -- Antonio Galloni
