The Box Wine Guy Reviews Delicato Merlot

The Box Wine Guy picked a good one to review yesterday. The vintage dated Delicato California Merlot wines in 3 liter Bota Box packaging from Delicato Family Vineyards have been getting plenty of attention in the last 3+ years. The Box Wines blog yesterday featured a review of the 2005 box, and gave it a rating of 8.5 out of 10. Here's what he had to say.

In tasting Delicato Merlot 2005, we seem to have skipped the 2004 vintage. We last tasted Delicato Merlot 2003, and never saw 2004. In any case, the 2005 Merlot is a worthy successor. The aroma has blackberry and saddle leather notes. The wine is nicely structured, with plenty of berry, plum, and oak.
