2008 Derenoncourt Merlot Stagecoach Vineyard Napa Valley Wine Tasting Note

2008 Derenoncourt Merlot Stagecoach Vineyard  (Napa Valley) 94

Chocolate covered cherries, espresso and earthy scents open to a fat, lush, concentrated, open style of wine. This is already delicious! Aged in 50% new, French oak for 18 months, with a production of only 68 case, this 100% Merlot is going to be difficult to find.
