I got into wine about 50 years ago. Started with French wines and in the mid-seventies got into California wine. And now I am a fan of almost every popular wine region.

Review from original list creator: "Lovely toasted cedar, coriander, burnt sugar and vanilla accents frame a notably bright core of black fruit that leans toward the cherry/black raspberry end of the spectrum. Smooth and rich, and a little soft perhaps but not much. This is rather extravagant Merlot. It has all the plummy fruit, mocha accents, hints of herbs and spices wrapped into a rich, powerful and luxurious package. there is plenty of structure here. Big tannins peek out on the backend and drive the finish into a dry and toasty finale, but then a pop of fred fruit appears to remind us who is in charge. A serious wine, and one that deserves 2-3 years in the cellar but it’s drinking well already and is a relative bargain. 93pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
