Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Fairly tight and unyielding and not showing enough of Merlot's rounder, more succulent side, this firm, acid-bound wine is far from friendly right now and exhibits too little fruity substance to make us believe that it will somehow get richer and better filled over time.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 vintage was a beautiful year. From bud break to harvest, Mother Nature coddled the winegrower and his charge. Lack of rainfall early on and some scattered showers towards the middle of October caused some concern for winemakers, but the dry weather that followed ensured that there were no problems in the vineyards. This allowed further hang time and the Merlot was harvested in the first week of November.

Tasting Notes:

An extended maturation gives this wine a brilliant color and softer tannins. There are aromas of cassis, hazlenut, laurel and ripe black plums. 100% malolactic fermentation gives this medium-bodied wine a wonderful, full mouth-feel with flavors of plum blackberry and a hint of oak spice. The wine shows great promise.
