Merryvale Starmont Cabernet

89 Merryvale Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon 2005. The body is fairly pronounced with oaky wood contributing to a long finish. Although the Merryvale tasting notes mention “exotic spices” I would prefer them to be more forward. Perhaps some cellar aging, as recommended, would help. The black current and vanilla were wonderful along with the seared lamb. $17.99. Read the full review.
