Smooth & Supple
This wine was easily one of the best wines I have had in the past few years. It was as full bodies as a cabernet, or Bordeaux blend, but smooth. I could drink this every day. Elegant, well devleoped fruit, integrated tannins are smooth.
I had a bottle of 2004 Merlot with steak at my birthday dinner 8/23/12, and it was exquisite! I'm not experienced enough yet to describe why things taste good -- either my tastebuds like them or they don't. I generally lean more towards the smooth and supple merlots, but found this bold wine excellent. My husband is not a wine drinker and even he enjoyed this wine.
Simply love Three Palms, cab lover's merlot.
