Critical Acclaim

The Merlot-dominated 2019 Phoenix (there’s 18% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) offers a great nose of ripe black cherries, tobacco, chocolate, and damp earth, and it’s medium to full-bodied, ripe, and incredibly polished on the palate. It’s one hell of a Merlot, especially at the price. Drink this beauty over the coming 8-10 years.

Ripe plums, blueberries and black cherries combine with sweet vanilla, pine wood and baking spices. Full-bodied, plush and tannic, yet this has a creamy, soft texture. The juicy and vibrant character makes its easy to drink. Long, warming finish. 64% merlot, 18% cabernet sauvignon and 18% cabernet franc. Give it three or four years to soften and come together. Try after 2024.

Composed of 64% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2019 Phoenix gives up notes of ripe black plums, blackberry preserves and mulberries, plus suggestions of menthol, dark chocolate and spice cake. Medium to full-bodied with plush tannins and bags of juicy black fruits, it finishes with a vibrant, lifted finish.
