2015 Hyot, Côtes de Castillon

90 points James Suckling: " A round and juicy red with berry and chocolate character, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Medium to full body. Needs a year or two to soften. Try in 2020. " (02/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Located to the west of Castillon-la-Bataille, this vineyard is close in geography and style to Saint-Émilion. It delivers a rich texture from the ripe Merlot as well as generous, warm berry fruits. At the same time, the wine has a light touch of acidity and a crisp aftertaste. Drink this poised wine from 2021. (RV)" (05/2018)

Wine Spectator: "Aromas of licorice, tar and some blackberry lead to a medium body, with light tannins and a fruity, delicate finish.

Despite the tiny size, part of the vineyards are on the limestone plateau and the rest on a south-facing slope rich in iron. This somewhat unique terroir results in a rich Merlot-dominated blend with great structure. We tasted this wine on our April 2014 Bordeaux trip and bought it on the spot. Deli ...

2004 Blackbird Vineyards "Premiere Napa Valley" Napa Valley Merlot

Premiere Napa Valley lots are incredibly limited, one-off bottlings from some of the region’s top producers. Only five cases of this bottling were produced. Winery Notes: “Sarah and I chose this lot as we feel it represents the best of what the newly appointed Oak Knoll District has to offer. Oak Knoll is second to Carneros as Napa Valley's coolest appellation. This fact combined with the clay, loamy soils creates ideal growing conditions for a beautiful Merlot similar to what you would find in Pomerol, on Bordeaux's right bank.

2016 Madson Wines Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot

Winemaker's Notes: "This Santa Cruz Mountain Red Blend comes from a single vineyard in Los Altos Hills. This vineyard lies at 800 ft elevation overlooking the Santa Clara Valley. Planted in 1981, the vineyard is steep and rustic with Franciscan Complex soils of basalt and schist. Warm days and cool nights help lengthen the ripening time and maintain fresh acidity. Once harvested, the Merlot (75%) was destemmed while the Cabernet Franc (25%) was left as intact, whole clusters. This is to promote bright fruit flavors and varietal complexity.
