Luscious black cherry aromas and flavors of chocolate highlight this elegant Merlot. Dollops of fruit merge with a touch of oak and freshly roasted coffee beans, all wrapped up in a rich texture that begs for another pour.
92 points, Wine Enthusiast (December 31, 2008): “Merlot and Santa Ynez Valley are a great match…dry, rich and
full-bodied, with beautifully ripe tannins framing black and red currant, tobacco, mocha and herb flavors.”
91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Sept. 09): “Keenly defined black cherry fruit with interesting suggestions of creme brûlée and root beer start this inviting wine out well in its aromas, and, from the start, it is balanced, rich and deep on the palate."
