Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) A lovely aromatic nose precedes a rich palate of juicy cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, followed by brown sugar and pleasing oak notes. This is a bold Merlot with round, silky tannins and an interesting layer of eucalyptus to complement the abundant fruit character.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2005 Vintage) Fruit is very much the missing component in this oaky and oddly chocolaty working, and, while scrawny and stunted at its heart, the wine is further hindered by coarsening tannins that make it as bitter and tough as it is empty.
