Osso Anna Merlot 2010

Killer Merlot deal from Jay Buoncristiani (head winemaker at high scoring Buoncristiani Family Winery, formerly with Hess Collection). Using Jaeger Vineyard fruit from the Oak Knoll district, across the street from Blackbird. Gorgeous, pure fruit- cassis, black cherry, chocolate and vanilla. Almost too good to be true, this outshines a lot of $40-50 Napa reds. [+]
