2010 Spring Mountain Merlot ~ Spring Mountain District

2010 Spring Mountain Merlot
Spring Mountain District

With a deep purple core the 2010 Merlot is deceptively bright in its youth. Fragrant raspberry and soft white pepper spice are balanced with sweet vanilla and deep fennel. After a few swirls of the glass black cherry and blueberry tart aromas emerge with some subtle gravel minerality. This year the mouthfeel is silky and lush with more of the same range of fruit as the nose, but with a larger degree of minerality. The tannins are moderately chalky without being overbearing. The wine finishes with dark cocoa and riper raspberry. This wonderful wine will age beautifully over the next 7-8 years (2019-2020).

2010 Barnett Vineyards Merlot Spring Mountain 

Rating: 92

$55 | 355 cases made | Red

Deftly combines a dense complexity with a supple texture. Aro­mas of red currant, mocha and fresh earth lead to layered flavors of black cherry, lead pencil and mineral. The tannins are firm on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2020.—T.F.
