    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2009 Merlot displays ripe black cherry and plum compote aromas complemented by enticing tea-leaf, toasted vanilla and woodsy scents. Plush, rich and juicy on the palate, its densely concentrated black cherry, dark plum and pomegranate flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins and a long, sumptuous finish graced by savory spice and mocha tones. An irresistibly lush Merlot of great depth, length and suppleness, it drinks deliciously now, yet will develop further complexity with another 2-3 years of bottle age.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Purple-black fruit flavors center this merlot, while scents of coffee and tar build off the tannins at the edges. The structure, still youthfully tart, could use a year or two in bottle to mellow. Or decant it to serve with grilled sirloin.

    Napa Native (10/25/2012)
    Smooth & Supple but not a weak wine, very full bodied. Stands up to food very well but I also enjoy it very much by itself.
