Wine Tasting: St Supéry 2000 Merlot

St. Supéry
(Napa Valley)
2000 Merlot
Rating: 6/10

Strong, spicy. Needs to breathe a bit. Initial hint of fruit gives way to strong oak. Too much aeration brings out too much oak. Some acid. Full bodied. Must be had with food.

Andrew's opinion was much more favorable. Perhaps worth revisiting once my wine tasting has progressed a bit further.

$21 from local wine shop.
