An elegant, soft, velvety example of Paloma, with a deep ruby/purple-tinged color, attractive notes of caramel, mocha, sweet cherry and berry fruit, this 2003 Merlot is round and medium-bodied with no hard edges. Drink it over the next 5–6 years.

Bright red-ruby. Complex nose combines plum, cherry, raspberry, chocolate, flowers and loam. Supple and juicy in the mouth, with rather cool flavors of cherry, chocolate and herbs. Offers moderate flesh and depth. finishes with dusty, slightly dry tannins and hints of licorice and menthol.

The owners of this Napa winery gave retirement a new and very active meaning when they purchased 15 acres of vineyards near the top of Spring Mountain in 1983 and began producing some of the best Merlots made in California. Unfortunately, they produced only 1,900 cases of this voluptuous wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Wine Spectator: Impeccably balanced, with rich, vibrant, intense currant, fresh earth, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's well-focused. The tannins and cedary nutmeg-laced oak add a firm edge on the finish. Best to cellar short-term or decant. Drink now through 2010. 1,930 cases made. (12/15/05)
