2012 South Bay Merlot “Unfiltered” – David Lawrason

This is best South Bay Merlot that winemaker Frederic Picard has yet produced. Not only does it have some weight and colour, it is well balanced, with enough fruit to enjoy now, and enough firmness to age. Nicely lifted, ripe and typical merlot with raspberry-plum fruit, florals and tobacco on the nose and palate. Very good to excellent length. Best 2016 to 2020. Tasted twice April 2015
