This wine boasts ripe, dark berry aromas and flavors while the Sangiovese provides a firm backbone and substantial body, the Merlot brings a lucious mouthfeel and lingering finish.

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Deep and well-extracted red cherry fruit scents with a soupçon of roasted bread and a veneer of crème brûlée richness added in for good measure, this wine is attractive from the outset. Supple to start on the palate with a plush early texture, it firms up towards the back and makes good use of late-arriving tightness for a bit of grip and up to a half decade of ageworthiness. It can be tried at any point but will soften with rest.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

A first-rate wine, totally flattering in the mouth, and addictively delicious. Itrsquo;s not big, but restrained and stylish, reining in the blackberry fruit to match a rich overlay of oak. The texture is a marvel, smooth and complex, all the way through the long, distinguished finish.

The dark ruby-colored 1997 Merlot is far better than the 1996. One can see Ted Lemonrsquo;s hand in the fatter, richer, more textured and layered mid-palate. This plump wine reveals berry fruit intermixed with chocolate and notes of underbrush. The winersquo;s excellent finish exhibits well-integrated wood and lower acidity that the tart 1996. The 1997 should drink well for 5ndash;7 years.

Captures in style the personality of the vintage mdash; ripe, robust and very forward with lots of showy fruit flavors and soft, friendly tannins. Itrsquo;s 100% estate grown, primarily from Mitsukorsquo;s Vineyard in Carneros, but blended with a small percentage sourced from their Home Ranch in Calistoga. It is 98% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 20 months in French oak, then bottled unfiltered to retain all of its flavor. Clos Pegase is one of the first producers of Carneros Merlot and this wine amply demonstrates the advantages of growing Merlot in a cooler climate, where shallow soils and long ldquo;hang-timerdquo; produce wines of great depth and balance.
