2008 Mayacamas Vineyards Merlot

2008 Mayacamas Vineyards Merlot. Super young, super angry right out of the bottle and needs a lot of time to settle down. But when it begins to, it is chock full of juicy cherry, earth, green tobacco lead and bracing acidity. In the context of Napa Merlot, this is very different from the rest of the pack. This can age for many years, IMO, too. Lovely wine for the $29 I paid for it.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
