The 2003 Merlot reveals plenty of sweet oak as well as berry, cherry, and plum-like fruit, and hints of underbrush and smoke. Round, moderately generous, and seductive, it will provide pleasure over the next 3-4 years. The pricing is fair for this cuvee, and there are 3,800 cases. Good ruby-red. Plum, mocha and dark chocolate on the nose. Fat, sweet and approachable, with easygoing flavors of plum and dark raspberry. Finishes with dusty, slightly dry tannins and a hint of menthol. On the simple side, but not bad. ** Only 9 in Stock **


Winemaker's Notes:

Deals plenty of sweet oak as well as berry, cherry, and plum-like fruit, and hints of underbrush and smoke. Round, moderately generous, and seductive, it will provide pleasure over the next 3-4 years. It is hard to find good, classic Merlot from California selling at a realistic price, but Atalon delivers the goods.
