90pts, The California Grapevine - "Medium-ruby; attractive, black cherry fruit aroma with spicy notes and hints of dried herbs, licorice, and mocha; medium-full body; herbal, red currant and other red fruit flavors with firm acidity, hints of tobacco and coffee, and some silkiness in the mouthfeel; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Tending towards an elegant style, and very approachable now."
WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Billed as a Cabernet lover’s Merlot, this wine offers robustness as well as a soft, angular quality that provides a certain level of elegance. Oak, green olive and sage mark its bouquet, followed by flavors of red currant and dried herb."
Tasting Notes - "This is a Cab lovers Merlot! Grown in a cool climate, its complex flavors of red currant, black licorice and hint of savory herbs are wrapped in a velvety texture that make your taste buds ask for more! The wine's firm tannins and vibrant acidity create the perfect partner with prime rib, rack of lamb or roasted pork." 100% Merlot. 13.5% ABV.
