Ehlers Merlot


Scored this bottle of 2005 Ehler’s Merlot from St Helena for $20 and was absolutely blown away by what i found. With about 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, this full bodied Meritage blend with a quick zip of herbaceousness in the front pallet is not for the faint hearted. Chewy and filled with flavors of dense cherry, raspberry and blackberry, promising firm smooth tannin in the mid palate that will be perfect in another 2 years and a perfect hint of right bank earth on the nose, even with a just semi memorable finish, this wine for $20 is absolutely massive!   Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
