Medium red color with artificial-looking fuchsia undertones. The nose starts with with sour cherries and young blackberries and transitions into minerals, wet rocks, and celery salt with hints of smoke and red delicious apples. On the palate this wine starts with a lot of acid and hints of citrus, plum, and butter. The mid-palate is a little too weak, but has some nice flavors like strawberry, over-ripe cherries, and some oak. The wine finishes with medium tannins, more acid, and a little bit of mineral salt flavor.

Suave chocolate and toasted oak aromas uncover beguiling scents of cassis, dark bitter cherry, violets and dried herbs. A similarly concentrated is lush with blackcurrant and brambly blackberry. A luxuriant finish full of creamy oak completes the picture.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90 EDITORS CHOICEGainey's track record for Merlot in Santa Ynez Valley is unexcelled. If the wines seldom are world-class great, they're seldom less than succulent and delicious. The '05 exemplifies the house style, a dry, rich wine, brimming with blackberry, cherry and new oak flavors that are wrapped into a fine, complex tannin-acid structure. Drink now.Wine Tasting NotesThe aromatics are deep, rich and ripe. Blackberry and plum fruits are the core fruit characteristics, but there is a hint of dust and a thread of sweet tarragon and a kiss of spice. Judicious new notes supply a nearly invisible, but critical foundation, and just a dash of caramel. Sounds like a freshly baked fruit pie. Yum. In the mouth the wine is all about balance. Mild tannins support oodles of berry and plum fruit flavors. The wine is full bodied enough to accompany anyones favorite meat dish, but possesses enough fruit, and is smooth enough to enjoy on its own.
