I thought it was great. Great nose, with almond and plum. and a nice complexity on the palate. Tasted more like a toasty cab to me, except that it had that almost effervescent quality that merlot sometimes has. certainly not boring.

Fruity and very easy to drink for its soft, rich texture and polished finish. Offers flavors of black cherries and cassis, with a chocolatey undertow. Like velvet, and finishes with a kick of tannin.

Creamy mocha and oak flavors are immersed in this wine, almost overshadowing the ripe cherry and currant. Turns raw, with dry, oaky tannins on the finish. Those who like wood in their wines will find this pleasing. Drink now through 2007.

An exuberantly fruity, smoky, oaky nose leads to a soft, straightforward, plump, chewy wine that is ideal for drinking over the next 5ndash;6 years.

Medium-bodied, with pretty spice, currant, black cherry and leather notes. Mild tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2006.

Spreads out plenty of ripe, tasty flavors, with a core of currant, blackberry and cherry and finishes with a nice touch ot toasty, cedar oak. Enough tannin to merit short-to-mid-term cellaring. Solid value. Drink now through 2008.

Black pepper, Turkish tobacco and sweet strawberry fruit all knit together in this tense, stylish Merlot. Therersquo;s a strong oak influence, but it finishes clean. Decant it for chicken grilled wiuth Moorish spices.

A little angular and sugary sweet, but itrsquo;s soft enough, with a creamy, velvety texture and some ripe blackberry jam and chocolate candy flavors.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Rich ruby red intensity with crimson accents. Incredibly rich, with intense blackberry and black cherry, accented by vanilla-toasted oak with hints of cassis. Supple and ripe blackberry, black cherry and hints of toasted oak and vanilla fill the mouth with a full mid-palate and a long, round finish
