A graceful style thatrsquo;s rich and concentrated, with a broad swath of currant, fresh sage, chocolate and black cherry flavors. Firm, herbal tannins and smoky, toasty oak carry through the finish. Drink now through 2007.

Soft and easygoing, with red currant and toasty dill aromas and cherry and herb flavors. Drink now.

Frei has done a very nice job with their 2007 Merlot, an opulent example revealing notions of plums, black cherries, mocha, and coffee beans. With delicious fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a heady finish, this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Petite Sirah and Zinfandel should drink well for 4ndash;5 years. It is an excellent value.

Pretty nice Merlot, dry and smooth. Therersquo;s a little green vegetalness going on, as if the vines were overcropped, but therersquo;s enough cherry fruit to satisfy.
