Dark crimson color, with aromas of toasted oak, black cherry jam and spice. this wine is a full-bodied, yet elegant glass with rich black cherry fruit and earth. The finish is slightly tannic and has lingering oak flavors. It should age well for the next five years and will develop Pomerol-like density and texture.

A medium top, dark crimson-colored wine with aromas of cherry, allspice, herbs and oak. It displays supple medium-bodied texture with black cherry fruit and vanilla flavors. This Merlot has a finish of oak and spice, reminiscent of the great Pomerols and St. Emilions of Bordeaux.

Sleek, offering elegant black cherry, plum and berryish flavors, with cedary, toasty oak adding texture and flavor dimensions. Drink now through 2007.

A blend of cassis, blackberry and herb flavors, couched in subtle oak, with moderate body and ripe tannins. The finish is long, with a hint of bitterness, however. Best from 200 through 2004.

Here's a tasty rendition of a medium-intensity Merlot from one of the first families of Sonoma wine. The deep red color is almost opaque, with purple highlights. Cherry and sandalwood spice aromas carry through to the flavors, with supple, bitter chocolate tannins. Round and balanced, this is the closest you'll get to a big, rich style in this price category. It will match well with all the steak, roasts and robust everyday dishes you can name.

Given a choice, we'll take Merlot from Sonoma County any day. Our cusp climate (not hot, not cold) and porous soils seem to consistently bring out the best in this noble Bordeaux variety. The 2007 is a great example. It shines with black cherries, plums, dried herbs, vanilla and mocha. The powerful aromas and soft, rich flavors make it the perfect choice for a wide range of foods and occasions. ~ Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker Sleek and tightly wound, with cherry, herb and cedar aromas and chewy lead pencil tannins. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. -TF

A light, fruity, spicy California Merlot, with generous plum and blackberry aromas and flavors shaded by vanilla and clove touches on the finish. Drinkable now.
