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.
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.
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.
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.
Made from their vineyard that straddles the Napa and Sonoma county line. Hence this cuvee is composed of 55% Napa and 45% Sonoma fruit. A big, structured, inky/purple-colored offering, it possesses gorgeous aromas of creosote, damp earth, sweet black cherry as well as currant fruit, and a chocolatey aftertaste. Rich and intense, with the wood well in check, this sumptuous Merlot is top-notch.
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.
Red-ruby. Aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, milk chocolate and loam. Sweet, complex flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, cedar, smoke and minerals, all brightened by harmonious, ripe acidity that runs through the wine. Finishes with round, sweet tannins and very good length. Merlot with real flavor interest.
The Merlot from 2008 was packed with such expressive varietal character that little blending was required. The final blend is composed of our 12 Merlot blocks polished with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Rock Arch and Rim Rock blocks. Blue-black color tinged with garnet is the first indication that the 2008 vintage is something special. Black and red cherries, plum preserves and currant mingle with spice notes including sweet anise. The texture on the palate is supple and viscous, with elegant tannins that are not overbearing.
