Dark red. Plum, mocha, tobacco, earth and bell pepper on the nose. Sweet, spicy flavors of redcurrant and tobacco, firmed by a distinctly green edge. Finishes with dusty tannins. Not bad.

Nice and smooth, this Merlot is for early drinking. It's as plump as can be in cherries, cocoa, cola and tobacco, with soft acids and even softer tannins.

Full medium red. Inviting aromas of redcurrant, plum, tobacco, milk chocolate and nutty oak. Juicy, leanish and on the dry side but with good vinosity and shape. Redcurrant and tobacco flavors complicated by hints of toast, nuts and spices. Slightly dry-edged but not hard. Finishes with fairly ripe, fine tannins. Not a particularly fleshy or modern style of Merlot but boasts good intensity.

From a venerable producer, a fine Merlot. It's soft and gentle in tannins and acids, but that doesn't detract from complex interest. The flavors veer toward black cherries, with a chocolaty edge. Perfect with a T-bone steak.

Simi's 2000 Merlot is marked by good concentration and depth, showing dark notes of mocha, blackberry and anise, and finishing with a refreshing hint of menthol carried along by shapely tannins and moderate acidity.

Elegant and well-structured, with appealing aromas of currant and roasted herbs and lingering flavors of plum, cedar and leather that finish with firm tannins. Drink now through 2012.

Well-balanced, with moderately rich, spicy cherry, herb, anise and cedar notes of modest complexity and depth. Drink now through 2004.
