    Winemaker's Notes:

    Regal dark purple in hue, the 2010 Merlot offers silky aromas of violets and mountain boysenberry with hints of cinnamon and clove. A firm, structured core promises superb aging, while the wine's rich, layered flavors and sensuous finish make it hard to resist now.

    Blend: 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    A firm core of tannins provides the underlying structure for the 2010 Merlot. This juicy, dark, yet wonderfully sophisticated and polished wine impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. The 2010 is impossibly young now, and it needs time, but is hugely promising. Layers of fruit flow effortlessly to the long, voluptuous finish. The blend is 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep and powerful, but still tightly wound. Aromas of red currant, tomato leaf and vanilla lead to rich but firm black raspberry, Asian spice and mineral flavors. Best from 2015 through 2020. 1,500 cases made.
