This is an awfully good wine. It's a great example of a coastal Merlot from a good vintage, lush and sweet in cherry, cassis and cocoa flavors, yet completely dry, and the tannins are rich and smooth. There's a complex velvety softness that caresses the finish.

Openly fruity, ripe and fleshy, with a supple, complex band of plum, currant and black cherry fruit that has a tasty overlay of cedary, spicy oak. Very complete and balanced. Drink now through 2008.

Here's a soft, gentle wine that's gooey-rich in cherry, cocoa-puff and ripe, sweet black raspberry flavors. Lightly oaked, it has a cleansing, espresso bitterness on the finish.

Better than most in the Merlot pack, this bottle shines with clear varietal flavors, smooth texture and subtle note of oak. It's a wine to enjoy now, not years down the road.

Merlot's gotten knocked around lately because of Miles's distain in "Sideways," but honestly, he couldn't be more off-base! Try Sebastiani's: the velvety texture is pumped full of blueberry-cherry fruit, with an enticing thread of vanilla weaving throughout.

Still dark and young after nearly four years, a big, brooding wine of considerable complexity and interest. Opens with big, lush flavors of blackberries and currants, chocolate, and coffee, very dry and rich in fruity extract. Tannins are thick and intricately detailed. Quite delicious and impressive.

Firm and compact, with a trim band of herb, toasty oak and currant flavors, finishing with firm tannins. Best to cellar into 1997 or 1998.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Because our fruit got extra hang-time, we achieved full ripeness, yet the finished wine maintained elegance and drinkability due to the coolness of the vintage. This dark garnet colored wine has a lot of upfront fruit with cranberry and black cherry aromas mixed with herbal, tea-like and toasted oak nuances. The flavor is cherry-intense, and the finish is nice and smooth. It is a charming wine that displays a lot of fruit and pairs nicely with chicken and light curry dishes.
