Rich, concentrated fruit is the star of this tasty Napa Valley Merlot. Aromas and flavors of blackberries and ripe black cherries merge in a juicy medley in the mouth. Succulent and thick on the palate, this red wine is definitely worthy of
a second glass.

91 points, Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, Jr. (December 2007): “...mocha, espresso roast, chocolate, plum, and black cherry characteristics.... big, chunky, fleshy, hedonistic effort that fills the mouth...”

90 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May/June 08): “ ...Black cherry, minerals, mocha and smoky oak on the nose. Suave and fresh...”

Just 800 cases made. Enjoy now with Roast lamb, salmon bisque, Asian chicken salad and red lentil curry.  Hold up to 12 years.

This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
