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.

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, Palomarsquo;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 7ndash;8 years. P.S. This is the Wine Spectatorrsquo;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 7ndash;8 years.

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.

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 5ndash;6 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

A big, world-class red wine capable of improving with bottle aging for 10 to 15 years in most vintages. Although the wine varies with the vintage, they have a consistent thread of complex aromas of black berry fruits, black stone fruits, chocolate, tobacco, spice and floral notes with a mineral overtone. On the palate the wine has a big silky mouth feel, well balanced, with flavors of berries, fruit, cocoa, cassis, and spice, and a long spicy finish. Fruit tannins in our wines tend to be big, but not harsh and are well integrated with the strong fruit component.
