    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a deep, rich ruby-garnet. With forward spicy sweet oak, there are layers of flavor composed of blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, dark plum, dark chocolate and spices such as cinnamon, clove and vanilla. The entry and finish are very smooth with integrated fruit resembling black cherry and Santa Rosa plum. The velvety texture coupled with the richness of flavor provides a profile that delivers from initial sip, one that continues on the palate for a very long finish.

    Blend: 81.1% Merlot, 11.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.6% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Freemark Abbey's 2010 Merlot is a wonderfully juicy, exuberant wine that bursts from the glass with flavor. Intense, round and supple, the 2010 is loaded with character and personality. Hints of spices, violet and tar add complexity over time, but ultimately, this is a wine to enjoy for its open, radiant fruit. The blend is 81% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot from Stage Coach (Atlas Peak), Keyes (Howell Mountain), Red Barn Ranch and Bosche (both in Rutherford). Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

    This is a super-impressive showing from Freemark Abbey and winemaker Ted Edwards.

    Good tasting wine. Smooth. Nice and smooth smell. Taste berries and a little mint with a tiny bit of a kick, smooth finish... definitely reorder.
