2014 Mer Soleil Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands
This wine has a delightful butter and honey nose with a hint of vanilla. The first sip is deliciously rich with a nice butter background. Some of the honey flavor comes through but it is not as sweet in this wine. The oak is also not as strong in this wine although it does offer up some earthy tones which balance out the richness. In addition, there are some tropical flavors, like papaya, that round the wine out nicely.
