The John X Merriman is a powerful wine that rewards aging. In its youth the wine is worth decanting and expresses cassis, black currant and dark fruits complemented with cigar tobacco and sour cherry notes. As the wine ages and its fine grained tannins soften a softer more savoury palate develops revealing wonderful drinkability and tertiary complexity.

The 2015 John X Merriman was matured for 20 months in French barriques, 35% new. It has far more fruit concentration on the nose, featuring blackberry, boysenberry and crushed violet aromas; just a touch of spice develops with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, quite rounded in the mouth with good acidity, and certainly fruiter on the finish compared to the 2016, although it needs more precision and finesse to rank with the top-tier Cabernet blends.
