Goldschmidt Goldschmidt Alexander Valley Merlot 2014
"100% Merlot aged twelve months in barrel. Style emphasis is on harvesting a little later to gain full ripeness and flavor. Very deep color, almost black, blueberry and cranberry aromas; full-bodied with moderate alcohol. The palate is lush with velvety tannins and intense plum and blackberry fruit."
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Merlot Chelsea Goldschmidt is a straightforward, pleasant, rather fleshy wine with dark berry fruit and not a great deal of personality or complexity, but good body, purity and a dark ruby color. It should be drunk over the next 5-7 years and if more complexity emerges will merit a higher score.
