(From 2011 Vintage) John Williams consistently produces one of the freshest merlots in Napa Valley, this vintage light and pretty with supple plum and red currant flavors. It lacks the confected fruit of so many wines that bear the varietal name, hewing instead to clean lines and a long, mouthwatering finish.
(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 demonstrates everything one can ask for from a classic Merlot. Pretty, red-fruited aromas and flavors with the trademark touches of damp earth and sage. This wine also has that defining Merlot mouthfeel, one that balances tenderness and authority making this the perfect candidate for either tonight’s dinner of roasted chicken or a decade of sleeping in the cellar.

Wine & Spirits(From 2005 Vintage) There's an ashy, sage and thyme edge to this ripe young Merlot that actually adds interest to the cherry, blackberry and cranberry aromas and flavors. The wine is voluptuously rich, almost decadent, so ripe is the fruit and so fine are the tannins, but it never loses its dry sense of balance. Very Bordeaux-like in elegance.
