WA 88 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "Their Bordeaux varietal offerings start with the 2012 Merlot, a dark ruby-colored, sexy effort with lots of mocha, chocolate, boysenberry and black cherry notes. The wine cuts a silky swath across the palate. With a medium-bodied, expansive mouthfeel, good purity and depth, and no hard edges, this fully mature Merlot is capable of lasting a decade."
Tasting Notes - "This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of fresh-picked raspberry, plum, blueberry pie, cedar and dark cocoa. A fleshy and generous mouthfeel is followed by flavorful notes of red cherry, smoky caramel cinnamon, mocha, espresso and toasty vanilla. With full, generous tannins that coat the palate, this wine has impressive length, lasting acidity and a soft, elegant finish. The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entrées, and roasted or grilled fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes." 14.5% ABV.
