The look: Deep and dark ruby at the center and purple at the rim. The sniff: ripe, dark-skinned fruits ... plum & blackberries, along with notes of coffee, molasses and tabacco. The taste: This Bordeaux style dry wine has medium levels of tannin, medium-plus on alcohol & acid, and some bitterness on the back end. Nice long finish. Decanted for several hours: Blackberries, coffee and chocolate more pronounced on the nose. Wine much softer on the palate and a nice, velvet finish.

Plum and blueberry flavors predominate in this soft, rich, mouth filling merlot, and are enhanced by aging in small oak barrels for a toasty, spicy vanilla character, and a lingering berry-cream finish. Drink this satisfying merlot over the next 2 to 4 years.

Lucid aromas of chocolate covered cherries and strawberry preserves are balanced by sweet herbal notes and a touch of cedar. The soft and round mouth feel is opulent with flavors of chocolate, roasted almonds and blackberry. A slight essence of licorice remains on the palate through a long and rich finish.

Winemaker Rick Sayer has found a nice balance between fruity, blackberry notes and elements of green olives. In the mouth, this yin-yang creates complexity and interest. Ultrasmooth tannins and soft acidity make it velvety.

A rich, luscious Merlot with lots of black fruit up front interwoven with some toasty oak... a great value in today's market.

A fine, ripe Merlot from a dependable producer, this is totally dry, with polished cassis, coffee, green olive and subtle oak notes. It shows a nice balance of modest alcohol and rich, intricate tannins.
