Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice on the nose. Densely packed and vibrant but backward with terrific cut and penetration to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with firm tannins and excellent black fruit persistence. Chris Figgins describes 2010 as "a perfect year like 2005 requiring no acidification." This structured and very promising merlot will need patience and may well merit an even higher rating down the road. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The flavors move through strawberry, raspberry and Bing cherry, with great breadth of flavor and texture throughout. The midpalate is concentrated and full, with a fine, lingering, superclean finish.
