I was out fishing for wine this evening before a tasting and found a bottle of above wine in a bargain bin. The cost was just over $20. Anyway, I've searched for some info on this wine on the net and several other boards to no avail. Anyone have any comments on this or did I buy a dud. For $20, I'll take the risk but would like to know what I'm getting into.

I haven't tried this bottling for over 6 years so can't really give any constructive comment except what we give all who venture into the fast, long-ago lane. Open that puppy and find out. WW

Opened this up on Tuesday night. Had to work on my day off; so aftewards (midnight) I opened this. I didn't want to decant; I was afraid it would fall apart. That was unfounded. The nose at first was full of funk and turpentine. The palate was almost non-existant at the front, but the mid and back palate was youthful and full. I also opened up an Altimura '97 at the same time; this was my back-up. I'll put the notes in the Cab section. That one wasn't ready either so we opened up Worthy '03 and thier next label Truth '03. We quaffed these while waiting for the other two to open.
The merlot finally opened up at around 3:00am. And wow! Red cherries, dried currants, and a hint of wet earth. The fruit was youthful; the mouthfeel was on it's game; the nose was outstanding. No more turpentine. I love it when fishing for wine works out!

That's dedication...sitting around until 3:00am to wait for a wine to open up! Sounds nice.
