According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Merlot Suscol Ranch is named for the indigenous American Indians that once lived in Napa Valley. The wine shows chocolate and tangy acidity with a dense ruby/purple color, good mocha and black cherries in a medium-bodied format. It is not the most complex Merlot, but it is satisfying and mouth-filling. Drink it over the next 7-8 years."
Tasting Notes - "This wine is quite impressive, offering layers of interest. Ripe flavors of dark plum and wild berry are enhanced by underlying layers of herb, cedar and sweet oak. The unique character of this vineyard includes a suppleness on the palate that few Merlots can offer. Its distinctiveness lies in the lush, velvety tannins that expand upon the initial sip and develop with richness through the finish. This evolution allows one to enjoy the wine today, yet also rewards those who choose to lay it down in the cellar." 14.2% ABV.
