Very nice and restrained on the nose with complex gravel, earth and ash soil tones balanced by perfumy floral and tobacco notes. There is a touch of woody sweetness as well as hints of cocoa and licorice but in an elegant and balanced whole. In the mouth this is lean and transparent with a natural feel to the slightly fudgy toned dark berry fruit. The aromas of oak gain a certain prominence in the mouth though the relinquish control to sweet wild berry and candied plum tones on the moderately long finish which ends with a touch of mint. A merlot to please almost any palate. 88pts

Spicy ripe blackberry. A juicy wine, full of fruit and zesty acidity. Finishes with nice oak and a bit of tar.

Very robust nose and some interesting flavors, smooth wood flavors, with a dry finish.

Big nose of spicy complex berries. One of the leanest mouthfeels I can recall - but in the good way. Huge black cherries and a delicate elegant finish.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Scented with herbs and smacking faintly of green olives, this effort underplays ripeness in favor of a fruitier and slightly more subtle style. Its main motif is that of cherries, and it tilts just a wee bit to firmness, and, if it is not a wine that is likely to wow fans of powerful, ultra-ripe wines, it is a nicely balanced, well-mannered wine that will get along famously with foods like baby lamb chops.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
