Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Impenetrably dark magenta. A beautiful and precise nose of graham cracker, mixed high-tone florals, ripe fruit, and hints of honey. Palate is silky smooth, incredibly dense and plush, loaded with ripe fruit and butressed by fine grained tannin and a very long finish. Simply pleasurable to sit on the palate. Overall this wine is more youthfully restrained than the Cabernet with laser focus and purity. I think this wine will really blossom over the next five years and reward as much cellaring as its owner is willing to allow.

    (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.
  • Wine Enthusiast
    (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."
