04 Provenance Merlot Carneros Las Amigas $60


This has great fruit, black cherry, maybe some chocolate. A little licorice too. It has a lot going on. The nose is beautiful, dark fruit bowl of mixed black berries, black cherry.

Being a Beckstoffer farmed grape, its got all that fruit flavor you expect. It then has this great long finish, a real mouth full of crisp clean fruits, tannins. Drinking this wine was great.

So it had all that fruit,but then came in with licorice, pepper, spice. There is a lot going on here. One of my friends first impression was Cabernet. The pepper came through for her. But there is no denying this is a Merlot!
