WA 92 W&S 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Merlot is an attractive, plump offering bursting with expressive fruit. Sweet, floral and spiced notes add lift on the finish in this mid-weight, vinous Merlot. This is a decidedly accessible wine for the vintage. It is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."
According to Wine & Spirits - "A blend focused on Keenan’s estate fruit from their Spring Mountain vineyard, this includes 29 percent of merlot grapes grown in Carneros. It’s a rich wine with power in its structure and tense tannins. There’s a fresh note of green herb that melds with black cherry flavors, then the wine turns toward its oak notes of chocolate and spice. Decant a bottle for grilled quail."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Medium red. Varietally typical if rather cool aromas of redcurrant, plum, cherry, tobacco, loam, spices and menthol. Supple and moderately ripe, with a dusty texture to the red fruit and herb flavors. The light, dusty tannins turn a bit drier with aeration."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Keenan has a good track record with Merlot, and here’s a lovely one. It’s softly approachable despite firm tannins, with flavors of cherries, blackberries and cola, and an earthy note that suggests mushroom risotto." 14.8% ABV.
