($90) Saturated ruby-red. Wonderfully complex, deep aromas of plum, currant, licorice, smoke, dark chocolate and spices. Superconcentrated, round, sweet and creamy, with highly complex flavors of plum, dark chocolate, minerals and leather. This offers breadth and palate coverage rare for merlot that's not grown on the Po merol plateau. The rising finish boasts superb breadth and length. A great California merlot.

Fantastic nose of flowers, berries, cherry and a bit of soil. It''s delicious but doesn't quite live up to the nose. Very enjoyable and still has lots of life left.

Succulent dark fruit, chocolate and spice on the nose and palate. Long, soft finish. This still has plenty of life. Think Helen Turley!

Crimson in color. Low rim variation. Slow legs. Nose of strawberry (?) and a light hint of smoke. Blackberry and light toast on the first taste followed by black currant (cassis). Light/Medium bodied. Silky texture. Short finish.
