Bartholomew Park Desnudos Merlot 2006 – Spear-a-Minty @bartparkwine

As I’ve mentioned in the past, Bartholomew Park is one of our must-stops when we’re anywhere near Napa or Sonoma.  While we first went there for their Zin, their other wines are solid as well.  Tonight, we enjoyed the 2006 Desnudos Merlot which left a very fresh spearmint taste on my palate.  Sure, there were other lightness to it, with some predictable vanilla and stone fruit, but the mint was really catchy (and I love mint), and provided a nice balance.  Cheers to a Merlot with some backbone!
