The nose on this shows excellent precision and while there is a touch of noticeable oak it acts to help frame the fruit and gives the cocoa and wild cherry nose a nice touch of roasted nuttiness. Very soft and smooth on entry with a gentle feel that slow spreads out on the palate. The coca tones are more prominent on the palate and the fruit leans more toward a spice plum tone with a nice bed of tannins adding some stiffness under the fruit. Interesting mocha tones on the moderately long finish blend with a toasted hazelnut edge to give this a complex finale. A fairly refined effort, and one that can improve over the short-term but already delivers an elegant drinking experience. Ideally suited for more delicate red meats such as Filet Mignon. 89pts

I am getting this at my local wine store for $9.99. I'm not a wine expert by any stretch, but this stuff is awesome. And it would be awesome at it's list price. Lots of chocolate texture and toffee flavor to be found. This is in my top five of all wines I've tasted.

Winemaker's Notes:

Refined elegance marks our 2006 Merlot. Opening with heady aromas of cherry, blackberry and a roasted coffee bean, the wine's bold greeting exposes the nature of its unique origin. Across the palate, supple flavors of forest berry and plum fluidly move in balance with a bright acidity and understated spiciness. Well integrated tannins hold through for a vibrant, lingering finish, complimenting robust pasta dishes, herb-stuffed chicken breast, or marinated pork loin.
