Penley Estate Gryphon Merlot 2009
Bright red. Spicy red berries, rose and herbs on the nose. Light-bodied, refreshingly bitter strawberry and cherry flavors are silky and precise in a pinot-like way, with a hint of mint on the back half. A fairly refined merlot that finishes with gentle sweetness and very good smoky persistence. I wish that more New World merlots had this wine's sweetness and light touch.
