2014 Parducci Small Lot Merlot
"Lots of fruit flavor and light spicy touches make this medium-bodied, dry and moderately tannic wine very attractive. Black cherry meets clove and cinnamon, while ample acidity joins with a touch of tannin for a well-balanced texture."
89 POINTS & BEST BUY, Wine Enthusiast editor Jim Gordon
"Mineral and slate notes abound in this tannic red, which features generous flavors of dark currant, olive and dried beef. Minty hints show on the finish."
88 POINTS, Wine & Spirits Magazine
"This first-rate merlot hits all the right notes and is a steal at this price by a long shot." - Bob Ecker, Napa Valley Register
