Substance Vineyard Collection Northridge Merlot 2014

SKU 23977


Generous as it comes. Showing a pedigree of cedar, pencil lead, dark cherry and scorched earth. Deep as deep can be. Saturating and unctuous. A wine that unfolds the story that is Washington Merlot.

Wine EnthusiastThe aromas of licorice, black fruit and dried herb bring a slightly baked quality. The flavors are full and up front, showing pleasing concentration while retaining elegance. There are a lot of good things going on here but I can't see them evolving much. Drink it in the near term.

Wine SpectatorTaut and a bit muddled, with currant, basil and spice flavors. Drink now. 610 cases made.
