Paloma Merlot Spring Mountain California North Coast Us Spring Mountain Napa 2003
90 points Wine Spectator: Impeccably balanced, with rich, vibrant, intense currant, fresh earth, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's well-focused. The tannins and cedary nutmeg-laced oak add a firm edge on the finish. Best to cellar short-term or decant. Drink now through 2010. 1,930 cases made. (12/15/05)
Spicy, cherry, oak, tannic, and Long finish. Will post tomorrow on an extra day in bottle pumped. I think it will evolve more and get even better. I give it 4 stars

An elegant, soft, velvety example of Paloma, with a deep ruby/purple-tinged color, attractive notes of caramel, mocha, sweet cherry and berry fruit, this 2003 Merlot is round and medium-bodied with no hard edges. Drink it over the next 5–6 years.
Elegant but firm and full bodied with bold, spicy black fruit flavors; long, spicy finish.
Bright red-ruby. Complex nose combines plum, cherry, raspberry, chocolate, flowers and loam. Supple and juicy in the mouth, with rather cool flavors of cherry, chocolate and herbs. Offers moderate flesh and depth. finishes with dusty, slightly dry tannins and hints of licorice and menthol.
The owners of this Napa winery gave retirement a new and very active meaning when they purchased 15 acres of vineyards near the top of Spring Mountain in 1983 and began producing some of the best Merlots made in California. Unfortunately, they produced only 1,900 cases of this voluptuous wine.
