Wine: Snapping Turtle Merlot 2007 Region: Monterey, CA This smooth, full wine smelled of pipe tobacco and curry leaves. It tasted of plum with a bite. The tobacco was also present while sipping. Strange, but surprisingly appealing as there was also a note of Dijon mustard. Overall, a pleasant wine. Reviewed 9.7.09.
