Supple yet focused, with plum and nutty spice aromas and well-structured currant, cedar and mineral flavors. The tannins are ripe, but need time to flesh out. Best from 2009 through 2012.

Limited production Merlot produced at an elevation of 2200 feet at the top of Spring Mountain. This is a Merlot that can age. Full of black plums, chocolate notes, and spice, this wine fills your mouth with velvet tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: The owners of this tiny winery are old friends of PORTHOS. We've been tracking their wine for 7 years now and the 2005 if their BEST YET featuring bold fruit and an ultra smooth texture! Ever since Wine Spectator rated this wine a "Classic" 95 points" and awarded it �#1 Wine of the Year� Paloma has soured to the top of the highly-sought-after Collector �must have� list! Don�t miss this one-time-only chance to add a few bottles to your cellar. THE WINE INSIDERS �Classic 95� rating: �Dark and smoky, this velvety smooth wine has beautifully integrated flavors of bold ripe blueberry, black cherry, raisins and the trademark Paloma hint of cocoa on the finish. Reminiscent of the famed 2001 vintage, this new 2005 promises to age gracefully 5 - 7 years, peaking around 2012 in our estimate. 95 points� WINE SPECTATOR �OUTSTANDING 93� RATING: �Plush, ripe and elegant, with fragrant currant, caramel and olive aromas and supple, beautifully layered plum, cedar and loamy, toasty oak flavors that are wrapped around a dense, complex core. Drink now through 2015.�
