2012 Long Shadows Merlot Pedestal - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Made by Michel Rolland; the berries were very lightly crushed--winemaker/estate manager Gilles Nicault described them as "cracked"): Deep red-ruby. Redcurrant and darker berries complicated by graphite and licorice on the nose. Lush and seamless but with lovely inner-mouth lift and energy to its dark fruit and mineral flavors. A bit less expressive today than the Saggi but this palate-staining Merlot will be a long ager. Finishes with big, tongue-coating tannins. - Stephen Tanzer."
