International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($80; includes 2% cabernet sauvignon) Full ruby. Superripe aromas of currant and chocolate liqueur, with a whiff of roasted meat. Huge, lush and gamey, with complex flavors of cassis, minerals, mulch, smoke and sweet herbs. Finishes with big, sweet tannins. A large-scaled wine that's more than simply a fruit bomb-but I'd want to drink this high-pH, high-alcohol merlot over the next four or five years.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

The Merlot should convert all the doubters of this varietal in Napa Valley, as it is consistently one of the top two or three Merlots made in California. At ten years of age, the 2001 confirms what an extraordinary Merlot producer he is. It transcends the category and puts to shame most of the Merlots that emerge from the Golden State. A dense plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautifully sweet nose of melted chocolate, creme de cassis, cherry pie, earth and spice. It possesses a voluptuous texture, brilliant purity and equilibrium, and a chewy, succulent finish. This sexy, complex, full-bodied 2001 Merlot is just hitting full maturity where it should remain for another 10-15+ years. Bravo!

A magnificent wine, deliciously rich and concentrated, with layers of complex black cherry, berry, currant, herb, mocha and spice, with pretty oak shadings and a smooth, supple texture and remarkably elegant lift on the finish. 1,428 cases made.

Opaque red black colored wine with lots of thin moderately colored legs. A warm and full nose of graham crackers, chocolate brownies, mint, vanilla, candied plum, milk, and light sage. Thick and rich on the palate with gobs of sweet, dense chocolaty fruit framed with moderate oak. Velvety tannins are almost completely obscured by the wine?s considerable fruit. Finishes very long. Acidity is sufficient for moderate cellaring. The wine showed little degradation 48 hours after opening.
