Lots of sweet cocoa and carob greet the nose along with a crisp arugula edge to the dark, slightly dried plum and boysenberry fruit. Has some vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco top notes. This has lovely focus as it enters the mouth, with youthfully dry tannins adding cut to the palate. The fruit is bright and fairly complex while not being sweet, with attractive vanilla, tobacco, cedar and dried spice accent notes. Some tea and Mexican chocolate notes emerge on the moderately long finish, which does show a whisper of heat but is nicely balanced in a fairly classical style. This has a lot going for it. 90pts

Our rich ruby-hued Merlot is fruit-forward with aromas akin to a basketful of ripe cherries, blackberries and dried blueberries. Supple, integrated oak melds with cherry pie, mocha and slight mineral notes. Firm yet soft tannins develop on the palate and lead to a long, elegant finish. Look to pair this wine with artisanal cheese, roasted meats or baked lasagna. - WineryVarietal Content:80% Merlot6% Malbec5% Petit Verdot3% Cabernet Sauvignon3% Syrah2% Zinfandel1% Cabernet FrancFermentation: 19 months in French oakBottled: July 2011Alcohol: 14.8%pH: 3.88TA: 0.59 g/100ml
