    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mouthwatering aromas of ripe plum and freshly-baked rhubarb pie are accented with light notes of cranberry and black pepper. On the palate, alluring flavors of cherry and allspice complement the wine's soft mouthfeel while well-integrated tannins lead to a long and spicy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A distinguished Merlot, dark, dry and brooding. Complex, too, with deep flavors of blueberry, mushroom, dark chocolate and anise. The tannins are fairly fierce despite the softness, but the wine doesn't seem like a longterm ager, so give it a decant before drinking over the next few years. Editors' Choice.

    Cherry and apples, fruity aroma. Very elegant and smooth. One of the best Merlots I've tried in recent years. Definitely worth trying, and in my case, purchasing again.

    A little too polished for my taste, but very smooth, with a nice tannin base that takes it a step above boring.
