#96 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Deep purple in color, the 2009 Merlot offers olallieberry and freshly-baked gingerbread on the nose. Plush tannins overlay a well-formed structure, while flavors of roasted herbs and concentrated mountain-grown blackberries blend together seamlessly. The weighty palate hints that this wine will continue to evolve beautifully with proper cellaring. The finish features lingering notes of whetting stone and blue raspberries.
Plush and richly structured, but with a dense, structured core, offering aromas of red currant and toasty mocha that lead to complex flavors of black cherry and Asian spice. Loamy, ripe tannins sneak in on the finish.
