J Brookwater Merlot 2004 – 90 Points
Went to a great French resturant at the top of the Hilton, downtown Atlanta. Had a glass of this merlot and it was solid. Can’t find it anywhere to buy so if you know where I can get it let me know.
Very nice nose with raspberries and cream with hints of carnation like flowers. It was a little unusual in a nice way. The color was a medium purple. The start is nice with blackberries and black olives and quickly transitions to black licorice. Not to hot at all. Kind of short transition. It got smoother in about 1/2 hour and became a very nice merlot. Medium tannins and a touch too bitter on the finish. I wish I could get a better read on this wine. It was not spectacular but it is worth a try. About a 50 dollar merlot. I will update this when I can get my hands on some more. Sorry can’t give you more on this one at this time. Just try it.
