    Winemaker's Notes:

    #60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    A blend of 54% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 6%Malbec.

    A nose of complex dark fruit with hints of cedar, crushed stone, an dry herbs leads into black fruit, licorice, and grenadine syrup on the palate. The perfectly integrated oak leaves no edge and the huge tannins are packed and concentrated but melt on the mouth. This wine has great aging potential and can be enjoyed now.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe and polished, with gorgeous chocolate-tinged black currant, black raspberry and coffee notes swirling through the long, vivid finish. Tempting now, but should develop more with cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2016.

    This new Uriah marks a return to form; big, brawny, chewy and complex, yet generous and complete. The blend continues as before—54% Merlot, 33% Cab Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, and 6% Malbec, all estate-grown. The wine opens with barrel scents and flavors of tea, tobacco and wood smoke. The cherry-flavored fruit saturates the tobacco notes, gaining mass and turning into cherry cobbler as it does.

    The purple-colored 2006 Uriah Merlot Blend is composed of 54% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It spent 18 months in French oak. It offers up a bouquet of cedar, spice box, olives, espresso, black currant, and black cherry leading to a medium to full-bodied, round, rich, spicy wine with excellent depth and concentration. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will deliver prime drinking from 2011 to 2021.

    I hate to disagree with the experts but the tannins were quite strong, too much of a saran wrap feel...perhaps with some time it would be better
