Impressive. Espresso-style, deeply concentrated Merlot, boasting a core of rich currant, coffee, black cherry and anise. Firms up on the finish, where a touch of bay leaf adds complexity to the flavor profile. Drink now through 2006.

Rich and long in the mouth, with impressively concentrated flavors of blackberries and plums and a delicious note of chocolatey fig. These ripe flavors are fully dry, with the most wonderful velvety tannins. The wine is soft and full of charm.

Smooth and flavorful, with dusty cedar and pencil shaving aromas leading to rich, intense pencil lead, currant and blackberry flavors, keeping its cedary oak profile. Finishes with a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2007.

A beautifully crafted, exquisitely balanced Merlot, rich in spicy currant, exotic spice and ripe blackberry fruit, turning spicy and exhibiting pretty mochascented oak, and finishing with a long, broad, rich aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.

Medium ruby. Highly aromatic nose of black raspberry, minerals, violet and bitter chocolate, with lots of sexy oak tones. Supple on entry, then slightly edgy in the middle, with dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes with a hint of unabsorbed acidity and slightly dry tannins.

What power and drama have gone into this wonderful wine. Sheer Pomerol, with pencil shaving, black cherry, cedar, chocolate and gamy-meaty aromas and flavors, tinged with violets, and the most voluptuous mouthfeel. Sheer hedonism right through the long sweet finish.

Wonderful ripe fruit is the hallmark of this lovely California Merlot, which displays rich and complex cherry, currant, anise, cedar and spice flavors. Gains in depth and nuance through the finish, where it keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 2006.

Winemaker's Notes:

This one's for Cabernet lovers! Although 100% Merlot, the intense inky ruby red hue and aromas of black cherry and cassis will make this a fun wine to slip into Cabernet tastings as a ringer to win. The mid palate is thick with ripeness and broad textures and the slight grip of fine tannin frames the lingering fruit and espresso flavors in the long finish.
