It all started during our weekly wine team meeting one week in February, our team sat down to taste our weekly lineup of new buys and possible upcoming offers. There were lots of current vintage stuff, some new Cabernet Sauvignon opportunities ... and a bottle of the 2000 Seavey Merlot. (There is actually a picture of it on our Instagram account on Feb 12th (@winelibrary)
We tasted it.
It was .... well ... you can guess what we thought of it. The team was totally blown away! Like ... beyond thrilled.
Check out the notes from Jeb Dunnuck and the winery below!
3 things you need to know about this offer!
1) Napa or Bordeaux? Or both?? Both Napa Valley fans and Pomerol lovers will flat out flip over this stunning wine. Stunning complexity and elegance. So much character. Bottom line, this is one of the most amazing and unique offers you will see from us in 2018. In fact, it will go down for collectors as one of our best offers of all time after you taste it for the first time! Think about this for a second. A superstar producer from Napa ... with 18 years of age on it .... that is drinking incredible right now! You just don't find these kinds of wines often!
2) The winemaking talent is incredible. The winemaker for this wine was Philippe Melka, who started his journey at Chateau Haut Brion and since then has traveled to Napa Valley (Dominus Estate), Western Australia (Chittering Estate), Chianti in Italy (Badia O Coltibuono) and Bordeaux (Chateau Petrus), where he divided his time between soil study and winemaking. Philippe honed his craft as winemaker by studying under such names as Jean Delmas and Jean Philippe Masclef from Haut-Brion, Christian Moueix and Jean Claude Berrouet from Petrus, and Paul Draper from Ridge.
On top of that, Philippe has been named one of the top nine wine consultants in the world by Robert Parker.
3) The reviews are simply off the charts. Jeb Dunnuck recently reviewed this wine which led to our buying team tasting a pair of bottles directly from the winery. The results ... were out of this world!!!
"There were 500 cases of the 2000 Merlot produced and it’s mature and regal today, with lots of currant and plum fruits, notes of spices and dried herbs, medium to full-bodied richness, and a classic, balanced style on the palate. It’s not going to get any better but is drinking at point today." - 92 Points Jeb Dunnuck
"This beautifully eveolved Merlot is a wonderful example of why Bill Seavey chose to age our Merlot. At age 18, this elegant wine is visually mature but yet bright and vibrant on the nose and palate. Aromas of forest floor, cedar shavings and black pepper combine with rhubarb, licorice and bright, intense young fruit. This Merlot has not simply stood up to the test of time, but has embraced it and eveolved into a mature wine with extraordinary character." - Winery
