    ($75; 81% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 4% petit verdot; from Yountville fruit) Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry and bitter chocolate on the nose. Densely packed, juicy and intense, with dark fruit and cocoa powder flavors currently in a restrained stage. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with solid tannic structure.

    Almost Pomerol-like'fans of the plush California style of Merlot may not approve'but still appealing for its notes of earthy clay, olive and lead pencil and how this balances rich fruit with loamy acidity. Offers dense and complex black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, finishing with firm, almost chewy tannins. There's no hurry. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

    The dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 The Tempest, a blend of 81% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot, exhibits chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with mocha, cocoa, black cherry, and plum scents. A hint of spicy, smoky, high quality oak adds to the complexity and fleshy character of this offering. With terrific fruit, structure, and freshness, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

    Excellent wine, big mouth feel and dense with lots of fruit. Can hardly believe it is a Merlot based wine
