2014 Spring Mountain District Napa Valley Mailbox Vineyard Merlot This has the depth and complexity of fruit grown in the mountains, in this case, a northwest-facing hillside high up Spring Mountain. It’s powerful and concentrated, the flavors completely filling the structure with bright intensity. Oak age has smoothed some of the corners and edges, buffing the rocky tannins with mocha notes. The wine’s freshness will carry it for five years or more. (450 cases) —Joshua Greene
