WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate: The 2008 Alpha Merlot is dark ruby red with an intriguing nose of cocoa/chocolate malt, a hint of herbs, cassis, and black cherry. Sweetly-fruited on the palate with a sense of elegance, this is a savory effort with good volume and a silky finish. It will offer enjoyment over the next 6-8 years. Rated 90+

Therersquo;s a Spanish accent to this spicy, cinnamon-scented red, with its smooth texture, predominant oak and sweet cherry flavors. Not an ager, it offers easy-drinking now.

Jammy style, with raspberry and plum flavors and a dose of toast. Chunky, with moderate grip in the end, so drink up with barbecue. Drink now.
