Merriam Vineyards Gloeckner Turner Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Wine EnthusiastA solid Cabernet from this hot appellation, located well inland in Sonoma County. The wine is dry, tannic and fairly high in alcohol, although it wears its heat well. The fruit is very ripe in the direction of black currants and dark chocolate. Will hold and change over the next 6-8 years, turning drier and earthier, but you can drink it now.
