    Winemaker's Notes:

    From its vibrant red fruit to its signature minerality, this is a classic expression of the qualities that have made Three Palms Vineyard legendary in the world of California Merlot. The aromas are bright and appealing with layers of red currant, cranberry, cherry and ripe raspberry. The palate offers a robust structure with lush red fruit flavors, as well as sophisticated supporting notes of warm earth, dried wild herbs and minerals. This age-worthy wine will benefit from decanting in its youth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated, deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, strawberry and minerals. Juicy, tightly wound and high-pitched, with perfumed flavors of black raspberry, blueberry, violet and pipe tobacco, along with a cooler suggestion of menthol. Quite backward today and less obviously ripe than Duckhorn's estate merlot, but offers considerable promise. Finishes with very firm tannins and lingering notes of black fruits and violet. An impressive set of 2002 merlots.
