    The vintage brings more of the same for merlot from Mitsuko's Vineyard (with a few percentage points of other Calistoga fruit out of the Dunaweal Vineyard) but it's almost too perfect or good to be true. The clay and the loam will always set this lush, ripe and smokey-amorous merlot into a savoury confiture of sorts but in 2014 there was more tension to bely the passion. Don't be discouraged because this '15 continues to seduce and the verdant leafiness mixed with blooming florals still counterbalance the jam. That said I just can't see the winemaking team suffering from pulling out hairs or losing sleep over this vintage. It's just so sweetly easy, copacetic and abiding. Plums and chocolate, vanilla and spices mingle with the flowers and texture is a given. The earliest pick in decades and 16 months in 32 per cent new French wood have entrusted this ripest of merlot with one of the most filled in and apprised mid-palates in California, or anywhere for that matter. That and a little bit of this (petite sirah) and a little bit of that (cabernet sauvignon). Drink: 2017-2021. Score - 91. (Michael Godel, winealign.com, Dec. 14, 2017)
