The 2016 End Game Merlot was aged for 21 months in new French oak and comes in at 14.7% alcohol. This is pretty much along the lines of the other Merlots, but there does seem to be a little thumb on the scale here when it comes to fruitiness. It seems just a little more concentrated in perception. That's relative, to be sure. It adds fine supporting tannins and velvety texture to go with the fruit. What it needs to do now is moderate the oak impact that shows up a bit too much in most of them. It should do that easily with a couple of years of cellaring, and it is not really discordant even now. In fact, with aeration it begins to show fine purity of fruit, and it is rather delicious. It's a fruit bomb, sort of, but in a refined fashion, so that's a very relative term. Drink now-2033
