Purchased from Van Camp Cellars, $25


Aaron: I always love Jim’s Merlots.  This is another solid showing with black pepper and gooseberry on the nose.  Some tobacco complements rosebuds on the flavor and while this is a bit more mineral than normal, there are definite notes of raspberry and blackberry.  90 points

Teri: It’s not a secret we love Jim’s wines (perhaps why we quickly joined the wine club of this tiny PNW gem). His 2015 Merlot is hearty but incredibly smooth. It fills your mouth with an even blend of juicy plum, sweet oak, and spice and a fruit forward nose to match. 91 points
