WS 88 WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Vibrant and open-textured, with fine tannins around a supple core of black cherry and meaty flavors, dancing deftly through the finish. Drink now through 2018."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "This cool-vintage wine offers restrained notes of toast, dried herbs, vanilla, mocha and blueberry. It’s lighter in style than recent vintages, with tart fruit flavors backed by grainy tannins."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Columbia Valley Merlot is slightly simple, with light plum and black cherry fruit, green herbs, menthol and floral notes. Medium-bodied, juicy and balanced, drink it over the coming 7-8 years. The blend here is 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in roughly 54% new French oak."

Winemakers Notes - "The 2011 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of cherry, raspberry and chocolate that lead into flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. It is a subtle and soft with a lingering toasted oak finish. This wine was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully." 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot. 14.7% ABV.
