Good Ol' Boys Club Wine - H-C 2005 Merlot

Yes I am calling this wine "The Good Ol' Boys Club" wine. Why?  The first aroma I received from this wine took me to a room full of cigar smoking men sitting in a country club with their smoking jackets on.

This deep black cherry color wine gave way to cigar humidor aroma giving way to earth and hint of black cherry.

The taste on my palate was one of plum and hints of black cherry, tobacco and bitter taste of strong coffee on the finish.

This is one instance of a wine we purchased and held onto for a few years.  It's nice to dig it out of the wine cellar and see how it's aged.  Unfortunately I don't think you will be able to purchase the 2005 now, but take a look in your cellar and see if you have a bottle you forgot about.
