  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (100% merlot, mostly Clone 3 from low-yielding mountaintop vines): Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, raspberry, flowers, licorice and cardamom on the nose. Very sweet and lush in the middle, with an exotic spice character to the dark fruit and dried herb flavors. Boasts lovely verve and grip--not to mention intensity--for North Coast merlot. A step up from the Sonoma/Napa merlot in ripeness and structure.

    Rich aromas of red currant and mocha oak lead to deep, tightly wound flavors of black cherry, cedar and dried herb. Tannins grip the finish. Needs time.

    The 2008 Merlot Vintner's Select is a big, jammy wine with little in the way of character. Black fruit, chocolate, spice leather and licorice wrap around the heavy finish.
