    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep crimson. Spicey mulberry, blackberries, bitumen and cigar. Coco and herb edged fruit sits in the glass and opens with air. Opening with dark chocolate and cherry nuance, the peaty background comes of age and styles the graceful personality of this vineyard. Classy, savory-flavored tannins and modest weight make for a seductively structured and velvet textured cuvee.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2006 Merlot Brookman Vineyard. Velvety textured and approachable now, it will nevertheless evolve for 5-7 years and drink well through 2020.

    Classy, with light texture, fine tannins and red plum and strawberry fruit. A delicate touch of mint lingers on the transparent finish.

    Ruby-red. Brooding cherry and cassis aromas are brightened by floral and baking spice qualities. Cherry-vanilla and plum flavors coat the palate and are firmed by chewy tannins, which add a bitter note. This gained focus with air while maintaining sweetness. Pretty serious in style, with very good finishing tang and length. No fat on these bones.

    Excellent finish especially if you like a rich plum taste.
