    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Sonoma Reserve Merlot 2007 is a well-balanced wine with attractive aromas of cocoa, savory herbs, and oak toast. The wine is full-bodied and fruit forward with flavors of juicy black cherries and currants. On the palate, this wine is concentrated with great structure, prominent fruit, and lively acidity, which conclude in a long and pleasing finish.

    Blend: 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Ruby Cabernet and 2% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    The moderate 2007 season created wines like this cool, mouthwatering red. It's neither fussy nor ambitious; it just tastes clean and bright, lasting with the flavor of cherries slowly ripened in the shade. Give it some time in a decanter to shed an initial scent of dill and expand on it's berry-rich length, then serve with chopped sirloin off the grill.

    The Big O (9/29/2010)
    While a "Reserve" is supposed to be pricey, this elegant Sonoman Merlot was not. A fan of Blackstone wines from their beginning, they truly have never made a wine not worth enjoying. Smooth, silky and well balanced this is a wine to enjoy for a long time. Allthough not the best Sonoman merlot I have tasted, it is surely a wine to treasure and share.

    Red w/Attitude (7/26/2011)
    Crimson-purple; Fragrant nose with black cherries, plums, black currants, vanilla, cranberry, pomegranate, plum, and spice; Silky & full-bodied on the palate, Cherry/plummy with rich mouthfeel; Round tannins, good finish. Not terribly complex, but very good nevertheless. Great to enjoy now.
