Not terrible. I was expecting worse. Currant and tobacco on the nose. Dark and heavy on the tongue. Dried cherry and earth with a fairly long finish. Read more

There’s an off-putting hint of turpentine on the nose but other wise this has the typical cocoa tinged black fruits with clovey oak notes of most Merlot. Fairly rich in the mouth and well balanced with fresh, if simple red fruits. The turpentine shows up as a top note of refreshing balsam. This shows good balance and nice varietal character. 86pts

Don't let the simplicity of the label foul you...A noise of Wild Dark Berries and Peppercorns, first the earthness with herb then a smooth light cocoa taste to finish with a hint of smoke. Picked it up on a closeout for $3.50 a bottle and will go back for more.

I like this wine, I just don't love this wine. I find that it needs food with it to help round out the taste. I tend to have a glass of the Loon with dinner once in a while but it is not my "after work grab a glass" wine that I look for. On a more positive note my wife does like this wine also so I do keep purchasing it and it is a simple wine to enjoy.

A bit smokey, but light and fruity. Not bad on on it's own.

This Merlot is dark garnet in color and has aromas of fresh basil, blueberries, and Bing cherries. With good richness without being too heavy on the palate, the flavors of fresh cherry pie, sweet plum, and soft cinnamon spiked cranberry dressing finishing with notes of rich, vanilla French oak and delicate cherry and strawberry flavors. - Winery

A wine to charm the sense, the wine beckons with black plum, violets and smoky pipe tobacco aromas in the nose. Rich textural qualities are intertwined with sweet cherry and graham cracker flavors, transporting you back to a childhood dream.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Deep red in color with a nice translucence, you can smell Napa in a glass of this Merlot: diverse soils and long, steady ripening periods lend added depth to Napa wines without sacrificing well-rounded balance. It has classic Merlot fruit aromas, but with layers of intricate spices; Indian spice, cardamom, spearmint, and sandlewood all make an appearance. The depth of this wines nose immediately sets it apart from its peers. Full-bodied, a core of candied cherry and red current is nicely wrapped around a frame of rich French oak. A touch of soft tannin is present, creating a wonderful mouth-filling sensation that plays perfectly into the deep, cozy aromatics that unfold into the finish. The luxuriousness of the fruit, spice, and well-crafted body is very reminiscent of the holidays. Balanced and boasting an array of flavors to pair meals with, this Napa Merlot is sure to be loved at weeknight dinners and family gatherings alike.
