Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) One of the most complex aromas I’ve ever seen on any Merlot. exploding out of the glass are ripe red fruits, candle wax, violet and other floral aromas, caramel, graham crackers, and a puree of bramble fruits. on the second day a beautiful note of chocolate and coffee appear, along with a fantastic note of sweet earth and dust. the acid of the wine is very refreshing and balances the long, lush, soft mouthfeel. the wine has laser precision and is quite structured for Merlot—and while drinking great now, will reward a few years of aging.

    (2007 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. This is a savory merlot, drawn from Seven Hills, Loess, Pepper Bridge and Mill Creek Upland fruit. It leads with a meaty scent, like air-dried, spice-rubbed beef; the flavors are dense and savory. With air, the dried plum and cherry fills out the formidable structure, a clear indication of a wine that will age.

    (2008 Vintage) "Dense, aromatic, layered and rich, this wine explodes from the glass with scents and flavors of concentrated berries, cassis, black cherry, and more. The vines have reached a mature stage that amplifies the fruit and keeps the generous barrel flavors in perfect balance. The barrel notes roll on in a chorus of toasty accents, and the finish is as good in the last minute as the first whiff from the glass."
