Blankiet Paradise Hills Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Saturated ruby-red. Wonderfully complex, deep aromas of plum, currant, licorice, smoke, dark chocolate and spices. Superconcentrated, round, sweet and creamy, with highly complex flavors of plum, dark chocolate, minerals and leather.
