Deep, bright ruby-red. Riper, oakier aromas of strawberry, cherry, milk chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg. Larger-scaled and more obviously structured, with stronger acids than the regular Merlot. Creamy in the middle but not yet revealing itself, but really exploded as it opened in the glass, showing strong black cherry flavor that lingers beyond the dusty tannins. Very impressive California Merlot.

The 1996 Merlot Reserve should satisfy Merlot lovers given its deep ruby color, and rich, chocolately, weedy, intensely smoky and seductive aromatics. Lush-textured, with impressive black cherry, chocolate and berry flavors, this full-bodied, elegant, stylish Merlot reveals plenty of depth and richness, but no hard edges. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

The 2001 Merlot Reserve is outstanding. Coffee, mocha, smoke, and sweet black cherry aromas soar from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, pure, elegant Merlot. This fruit-laden 2001 should be consumed between 2004-2012.

Slightly backward and concentrated, the opaque purple-colored 1997 Merlot Reserve possesses full body and great extract and richness, as well as lots of tannin, volume, and flavor intensity. It should keep for 12-15 years.
