I had seen Phil Baily earlier and he sent me off with a bottle of his Baily Winery 2008 M & M, 60% Merlot/40% Malbec blend. Tony wasn't shy with his opinion: "Super great nose!Awesome taste! Drinks like a $100 bottle."
He commented on notes of eucalyptus and mint on the nose, the extended finish with concentrated brambleberry and called it a knockout. Jan said it was "a wonderful wine" with great structure and a beautiful nose. I had tasted it earlier in the day and really feel it's one of the single best Cabs I have ever tasted.
