2014 Kenefick Ranch Merlot

Rated 90 Points from Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

Pluot, cherry anise and fine cocoa are exhibited on the aromatic profile. Bright red fruit and boysenberry preserves are underlined by a clean crème brulée middle. The finish is extended with very soft tannins accented with new French oak. Good to drink now and will cellar well for the next 8-12 years.
