Well I have been a huge fan of Thomas Liquors over the past year. It is hard to believe I really discovered buying from them on a regular basis only a year ago. The 20% off a case was a deal sealer. Normally my wife is hard to please in the red category but she loved this one last night as the Roederer Anderson Valley Brut was corked.
2018 Robert Keenan Winery Merlot Napa Valley – USA, California, Napa Valley (1/29/2023)
Day 1: Oak, dark cherry, spice, minerals, dust and floral notes. A bit tight on day 1 so no score given.
Day 2: Open for business. Dark cherry, plum, saddle leather, mild oak, spice, floral notes, chocolate and minerals. Complex offering and mighty tasty for $41. 92 points
Recommendation: Well, my wife loved it so no day 3 for me. (92 points)
Cost: $41.43 with tax
