Vintage: 2007 11/13/2010

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Favoring the herbal end of the Merlot spectrum and showing just a bit of a petrolated note that can occasionally accompany red wines sourced from the Central Coast, this bottling gets points for its direct, mid-depth filling but then gives some back as latter palate tannin roughs things up and dries out its finish.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Youthful and juicy up front, with cherry and licorice notes. This takes on length and density, finishing with red currant, spice and roasted sage tannins. Drink now through 2013.

The 2005 Merlot begins with luscious black fruit aromas. A deep, velvety texture unfolds with layered flavors of blackberry, black currant, blueberry and mocha. The palate is smooth and seamless from beginning to end, finishing softly with long, pure fruit and a hint of cinnamon.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The Ancient Peaks Merlot opens with rich red fruit aromas with accents of tobacco, black olive and spicy oak. Smooth, polished flavors of plum, cassis and black cherry unfold with notes of cedar and cinnamon. Supple tannins embrace an elegantly balanced finish." -Winery
