International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91($45; blended with 15% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Explosive, pungent aromas of bitter cherry, violet, licorice, spices, pepper and minerals. Sweet, dense and sappy, with nicely concentrated red fruit and spice flavors. Youthfully oaky finish features noteworthy freshness and length.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2004
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The exuberant 2002 Merlot possesses a chocolate, coffee, sweet black cherry, and earth-scented bouquet as well as a spicy, firm, rich style.Author: Robert Parker
Mia Klein's personal project has produced such benchmarks as the 1999 Selene Merlot Blackbird Vineyard and Sauvignon Blanc Hyde Vineyard (year after year). In the 2002 vintage, she added Chesler, a Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon blend of dramatic proportions.
