At first offers up a very precise and clean nose but turns just a touch hot as the intense, spicy red fruits begin to assert themselves. Soft in the mouth with very fine wild berry/currant fruit up front then a mid-palate which is just a bit woody and bitter but powerful and full of chewy, dense fruit. Finishes with good length but not much complexity to the bittersweet cocoa notes that dominate the end.

Luscious red berry nose laced with some mint and eucalyptus nuances. Some wet stone as well. It has some strong acid that comes on a bit astringent. Flavors of black cherry, chocolate fudge and espresso. Good fruit, but has some tartness. 1/21/12

Some espresso on the nose. Sour nose and a tad plummy, with sou cherry. It's a full bodied, succulent, fleshy merlot. Rich and dense. Super rich on the palate like some of the best California merlots are. Very nice. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 6/19/10

This Merlot could easily be mistaken for a great cab. It is rich with notes of chocolate and smooth tannins. had some with good friends tonight for Memorial Day and went great with our grilled burgers.

Luscious, sleek and complex, with floral red currant and Asian spice aromas that lead to layered, concentrated flavors of black cherry, white pepper and sweet cinnamon oak. Drink now through 2016.
