Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Merlot, which is 100% Merlot, is actually one of the few truly great Merlots made in Napa Valley. (Pahlmeyer nails it with another one, but there are a few others.) This wine has terrific fruit intensity, big, deep, chocolate/mocha, black cherry and currant notes, and a large frame filled with extract, glycerin and juicy, chewy fruit. It is a sumptuous Merlot fruit bomb to drink over the next 10-15 years.

 

 

Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby in color with an almost opaque core leads to intense aromas of blackberry, wild plum and black tea. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. This Merlot is approachable now, but has the characteristics to develop and improve for decades.
