JS 97 Pts, WS 93 Pts, WA 91 Pts Winemaker Notes - Indigo at the core with garnet edges, this gorgeous Merlot leads with aromas of candied violet, red plum and ripe fig. A beautiful freshness accompanies mouthwatering flavors of dark red cherry and raspberry, layers of deep blue fruits and sophisticated notes of savory grilled herbs. Ultra-plush and velvety with rich dark chocolate, espresso and earthy riverstone emerging throughout the luxurious finish.
According to James Suckling - This continues to be a benchmark for Napa merlots for me with soft and velvety tannins, earth, mushroom and meat character. White truffle too. Unique nose. Full body and a juicy, long, long finish. Drink or hold.
