Nothing short of spectacular, the 2011 La Ricolma is a pure expression of Merlot that has ripened to perfection during the final stages of the warm harvest season. The richness and intensity of the wine know no bounds, and the textural finesse is equally impressive. Black cherry and blackberry render a sense of softness, while exotic spice flavors and Mediterranean herb give the wine depth and dimension. Although this edition of Ricolma doesn’t have the same level of focus and precision of cooler vintages (like 2010), it remains a true standout Tuscan Merlot nonetheless. I’d give the 2011 a shorter drinking window because of the overtly ripe nature of the fruit that may evolve quickly with cellar aging. Oct 2014, www.robertparker.com
