I would put this wine on the short list of best merlots out there today. Deep, unctuous texture, explosive blackberry fruit, whispers of vanilla oak, oh and I think someone might of thrown a bar of high quality dark chocolate into the barrel while no one was looking because there's chocolate and more chocolate in this wine. Absolutely wonderful!

Winemaker's Notes:

Here we go! Invite your friends over and start pouring. We have yet to present a glass of this wine to a person without eliciting a “Wow.” Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. And we’re not talking about milk chocolate, we’re talking deep dark chocolate, the kind you’d pair with a raspberry reduction sauce. With all the round, supple, sexy textures you could want from a Merlot, it conveys pure pleasure and yet remains a serious wine.

Tasting Notes:

"The 2008 Merlot Showket Vineyard Alexis’s Cuvee offers a great introduction to how good Merlot can be. Aromas of chocolate, black currants, black cherries and forest floor jump from the glass of this fleshy, opaque ruby/purple-colored Merlot. Deep, chewy and succulent, it is both a hedonistic and intellectual thrill-a-sip. Drink it over the next 10-12 years...93" WA 12/10
