Very aromatic with dried plum, salted plum, chocolate and black pepper aromas layered over a base of fairly assertive and toasty oak aromas. Showing nice focus on entry, this fans out across the palate with boysenberry, mulberry and red plum flavors that carry with them well judged oak spice and are built upon a bed of soft tannins and integrated acids. A subtle herbal streak builds on the back end and adds some detail to the lightly chocolaty and baked raspberry fruited finish that is a touch dry and short. The nose here is fabulous and the wine really shows very well on the palate, only slipping a bit on the finish. 87pts

Attractive nose of black cherry, hints of talc (baby powder), and dried leaves or maybe black tea. Attacks with light to firm acid that balances deep rich ripe neither sweet nor sour dark fruit (black cherry, woodsy dark berries) with hints of vanilla cake, smoke, stone, and wood. Medium finish of wood and fruit in good balance. Dryish to off-dry. Body medium plus, acid medium, tannin medium.

Not a fruity wine, but one with various nuances of tobacco, coffee and earth wrapped in a soft, supple mouthfeel. This easygoing red is very drinkable on its own.

Soft and supple, with inviting notes of chocolate, cherries, nutmeg, and cedar. Drink now through 2005.

From cool climate vineyards this, pleasing, fruit forward red is rich, supple and smooth. It enters with flavors of plum, cranberry and white pepper. The mid-palate is loaded with cocoa and blackberry, which gives way to a refined boysenberry and wild strawberry finish. For the price it is quite nice.

This Merlot is medium plum in color, with very intense aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cranberry. The palate opens with white pepper, cassis and rich black cherry notes. The long finish is supple, with lingering boysenberry and wild strawberry flavors.
