Fairly light and fresh on the nose with an attractive blend of underlying tarragon and dill elements wrapped up with creamy, toasty oak and bright cranberry, candied cherry fruit. This feels rather soft and smooth in the mouth with everything tightly in its place. There's plenty of acidity here but also a bit of sweetness to help balance it out, leaving the impression of softness in the mouth and an almost flannelly texture. There's fine cherry fruit along with obvious toasty oak spice in an easy-to-drink package. The finish shows a hint of heat and gains some sticky length from the sweetness. You really get a sense of each of the elements as they lack some balance on the finale. 86pts

The 2009 Merlot Vintner's Reserve shows excellent plumpness and juiciness along with an open, approachable personality. Ripe red berries, flowers, licorice and spices are some of the notes that flow from this flavorful Merlot. Subtle floral and earthy notes add complexity on the finish. This is another strong performance in the Vintner's Reserve series. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014. "Intricate layers of black cherry, plum, currant, and wild berry mingle with a hint of spice. The soft, delicate tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish." - Randy Ullom, Winemaster Statistical Information Appellation: Sonoma County Composition: 96.1% Merlot 1.9% Malbec 1.4% Cabernet Sauvignon .4% Cabernet Franc .1% Carmenere Growing Regions: 79.6% Sonoma County 14.6% Mendocino County 5.8% Napa County Alcohol: 13.5% T.A.: 0.58/100ml pH: 3.57 ** SOLD OUT **


Winemaker's Notes:

Black plum, boysenberry and cherry flavors abound in the glass amongst the violet, chocolate and cedar notes. This wine is smooth with tannins that are refined and round.
