Wine Advocate ReviewA sweet perfume of plums, cherries, mocha, and herbs jump from the glass of this opulent, medium-bodied, smooth Merlot. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years. It is hard to find good, classic Merlot from California selling at a realistic price, but Atalon delivers the goods.Wine Tasting NotesDeep purple in color with intense aromas and flavors of cherry, pomegranate, ripe plums and blackberry. Herbal notes such as fresh basil, dried lavender, olives and white pepper sit in the background adding depth and complexity. The tannins are firm yet smooth adding to a pleasant, lingering finish.
