($56) Good full red. Perfumed aromas of redcurrant, plum and licorice, lifted by a floral nuance. Bigger, richer and plumper than the cabernet franc, but a bit youthfully mute and evolving slowly. Dominated by red berries today and displaying solid supporting structure. Finishes with dusty tannins. This will need some bottle aging to develop more aromatic complexity.

The 2007 Merlot, which comes from both Napa and Sonoma fruit (the Pride Mountain vineyards are split by the county line), exhibits a dense purple color as well as abundant chocolate and berry fruit notes, medium to full body, and great freshness, length, and depth. It is a heady, succulent style of Merlot to drink over the next 7-10 years.

I used to not be a big Merlot fan, as most of them were too light for me. But I have discovered fuller bodied Merlot's that are excellent. This wine is really elegant. Blackberry, dark cherry and vanilla flavors, with a good body and long finish for a Merlot. Tasted three times with consistent results.
