  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($41) Bright ruby-red. Plum, currant, tobacco and spicy oak on the nose. Sweet, pliant and easygoing, with more fruit and less dominant oak than the WWV merlot. Nicely sweet on the finish, with the obvious new oak element more successfully supported by the wine's mid-palate fruit.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Elegant, almost aristocratic, offering subtle layers of blackberry, cherry, tar and licorice aromas and flavors, finishing harmoniously. Tannins are firm but not intrusive. This one should develop beautifully in the cellar. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

    The 2003 Merlot Columbia Valley (9,137 cases) displays attractive aromas of chocolate-tinged blackberries and dark cherries. Armed with excellent to outstanding depth of fruit, this dark berry-flavored wine is medium-bodied and firmly tannic.
