  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Bright, full red-ruby. Subdued but pure nose offers cassis, violet, licorice and a whiff of menthol. Juicy, suave and smooth but quite dry; not at all a fleshy style of merlot. In fact, this minerally midweight is made in a distinctly claret-like style. This is blended with 7% petit verdot; past vintages included some cabernet sauvignon and cab franc.

    Firm in texture, with a tight grip of tannins on the smoky blackberry and currant flavors, persisting on the finish. Needs time to soften.

    The purple-colored 2007 Merlot contains 7% Petit Verdot. The nose offers up a whiff of new oak along with scorched earth, mocha, black currant, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. This leads to a medium to full-bodied, opulent wine with layered, savory fruit, succulent flavors, plenty of fine-grained tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will continue to blossom over the next 5 years and present a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2022.

    Intense dry tannins but handles it beautifully due to the big tastes of blackberry jam, spice and mocha. Nose of blackberry, balsamic, olives and maybe some coffee, too. Long finish
