At the time of Parker's review, this wine - the first Merlot-based blend created by Jonata - had not yet been named. The winery decided on Fenix, which stuck. By the time Antonio Galloni reviewed the 2008 vintage of this wine (which he scored 93 points), it was emblazoned with its new moniker. This is a wonderful opportunity to obtain the inaugural bottling of an icon-in-the-making.
Tasting Note: The 2007 Not Yet Named Merlot, etc. is a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Made from tiny yields, it exhibits plenty of mocha, coffee bean, black cherry, and chocolaty characteristics, full-bodied richness, intense flavors, good acidity, and substantial, but ripe tannins. The 2007 should evolve over a twenty year period. Score - 92-94. (Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com, Aug. 2009)
