Natalie's Score: 90/100

A big, black-hearted wonder with a smoky finish. Aromas of black plum and dark chocolate. Could use more cellar time. Definitely decant for 1-2 hours.

The 2006 SLC Merlot has an elegance and polish like no other vintage. Sweet, ripe fruits dominate the nose, with aromas of plum, blueberry and black raspberry. Further complexity emerges in the form of spice notes, violets, vanilla and chocolate ganache.

The palate is soft and inviting with very fine grained tannins and a long, persistent finish.
