Long Shadows Merlot Pedestal Merlot 2005
Another Insane WA wine

2005 Pedastal..another Long Shadow wine with Michel Rolland as the wine consultant. This is 100% Merlot ( I think) and has WA Pomerol written all over it. It is new world to be sure. Nose had leather, dark fruit/black berry, dirt and even a hint of rubber. Finish was seamless with wonderful chocloate. I've  had the past two vintages of this wine and this is the best. The '04 had a dirty penny finish. The '05 does not. From start to the finish it was nearly seamless and nearly flawless. This is what insane WA wines are all about.  Kudos to Michel Rollland and Longshadow. This along with the Sequel and the Pirouette, they have hit a home run.
