The 2005 De Tierra 'Estate' Merlot is the product of a very unique vintage for the Russell Estate Vineyard. The vineyard was pruned to produce ultra low yields with maximum concentration of the fruit intensity and terroir. The wine possesses classic Bordeaux aromas of hard spices, cedar, and blackberry with vanilla and smoky oak flowing behind, reminiscent of a Pomerol style wine. Full and intense in the mouth, rich fruit flavors are carried by balancing acidity that keeps this wine focused and produces a lush finish. With 24 months of bottle age, this wine is drinking quite well. It's structure and intensity suggest many years of enjoyment to come.
