While a "Reserve" is supposed to be pricey, this elegant Sonoman Merlot was not. A fan of Blackstone wines from their beginning, they truly have never made a wine not worth enjoying. Smooth, silky and well balanced this is a wine to enjoy for a long time. Allthough not the best Sonoman merlot I have tasted, it is surely a wine to treasure and share.
Smooth & Supple
Crimson-purple; Fragrant nose with black cherries, plums, black currants, vanilla, cranberry, pomegranate, plum, and spice; Silky & full-bodied on the palate, Cherry/plummy with rich mouthfeel; Round tannins, good finish. Not terribly complex, but very good nevertheless. Great to enjoy now.
