Bedell Cellars 2014 Merlot
Decidedly savory overtones accent just-crushed fruit aromas and flavors of plum, raspberry and blueberry. Lithe, taut and still young, it overflows with bramble and blueberry fruit that is again accented by a certain meaty umami-ness. Give it another year or five in the cellar.
