|Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
It very evident this Merlot spent time in wood, as the toasty vanilla aromas and flavors. They also join cherry and blueberry flavors with herbal notes. I really enjoyed this wine, and look forward to having it again.
|Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The 2011 Rosewood Merlot, aged in new and seasoned French Oak for 14 months, has intense aromas of vanilla, cedar, pine and red currant on the nose and cranberry, pomegranate, red currant and vanilla on the palate. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry/dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity, refined tannins (NEEDS to decant for 1+ hours) and a medium to long, vanilla dominated finish. It is food friendly; drink 2014/15-2018. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted Nov/18.
