Tonight is a special occasion....it's one of those days that ends in "Y".....so what better reason to go into the library and open up a nice bottle of wine?
2005 Quails' Gate Merlot
The nose brings beautiful notes of plum and raspberry jam. This sophisticated wine will dance across your palate, velvety and luscious. A terrific bottle of wine, if you are lucky enough to have one of these in your cellar, time to break it out. In my opinion, it has peaked and maybe even started on the decline every so slightly. Don't take that negatively, though, it was still fabulous. 88.
