2016 Bonny Doon 2016 I Am Not Drinking Any $%&*#! Merlot image

You may well be looking at me sideways for saying it, but I will be drinking some $%&*#! Merlot.  Good, deep ruby color, with a lovely dusty aroma of fraise de bois, licorice and gingerbread, with the subtlest suggestion of garrigue de Provence; the ’16 vintage is a bit more substantial in weight and persistence than the ’15. Quite elegant on the palate when first opened, the wine continues to build in amplitude in the glass with more air. The Merlot has wonderful natural acidity (go figure!), medium tannins and great persistence.
