    Offers an inviting nose of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla, toast and tobacco, while sweet fruit and mineral flavors abound. Focused yet generous, with beautiful balance and a long, spicetinged aftertaste. Needs aeration to come together. Decant if you must drink now, but better to wait. Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2030.

    Tasted from barrel, the 2013 Masseto is shaping up to be a super star. This edition of the wine is already more muscular and tight compared to the warm vintage expression in 2011 and 2012. This Masseto instead is linear and balanced with pretty fruit tones that are enhanced by enduring sensations of baking spice, dark chocolate and tobacco. The bouquet delivers the classic aromas you should expect of a Merlot of this high standard. The mouthfeel also shows a tight acidic vein that bodes well for the future evolution of this stunning wine. The tannins are youthful and unyielding but they also show firm structure and balance that serves to support the wine's rich extract and flavors. Barrel Sample: 95-97
