External Reviews for Paloma Merlot Spring Mountain District
Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Deeply fruited, impressively filled with a very keen sense of dark, well-ripened cherries that indelibly marks it as Merlot, Paloma's latest is an especially well-balanced working that is at once very rich, refined and remarkably polished. It does show a streak of fine-grained finishing tannins, but there is nothing so coarse as to raise any worries, and the wine's fruit eases its way past a bit of last-minute astringency. As good Merlot will, this one might tempt early drinking, but it has a long life before it and should evolve for years to come.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
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.
Supple and complex, an elegant, graceful style, with pretty currant, plum, wild berry, sage and cedar notes. Drink now through 2007.
A spectacular Merlot from proprietor Jim Richards, Paloma's full-bodied 2001 offers up a gorgeous display of black currant and mocha-infused fruit that cuts a large swath across the palate. Unctuously textured, with no hard edges, gorgeous aromatics, and loads of flavor. it will provide enjoyment over the next 7-8 years. P.S. This is the Wine Spectator's wine of the year for 2003.
A big, sweet perfume of chocolate fudge, toffee, caramel, black cherry jam, and coffee beans jump from the glass of this flamboyant, exotic, plush Merlot. Medium to full-bodied with low acidity and ripe tannin, it represents a hedonistic blast of fruit, glycerin, alcohol, and soft tannins. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years.
A supple, graceful style. complex aromatics of red currant, plum and black cherry carry over to the palate, offering depth, richness and layers of flavor that unfold gradually. Tightly wound now, with firm but ripe tannins. Keeps revealing subtle flavor nuances, with hints of mineral, sage and dusty berry. Best from 2008 through 2013.
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.
91 points Robert Parker: The 2007 Merlot is a sumptuous, round, silky, generous, delicious effort offering plenty of berry fruit, mocha, and chocolatey undertones. Like so many wines that have emerged from this Spring Mountain vineyard, it offers delicious drinking. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years. (Dec 2009)
