Review by Stephen Tanzer
(79.8% merlot, 11.8% cabernet franc and 8.4% cabernet sauvignon): Good bright ruby-red. Perfumed nose offers currant, cherry, cocoa powder, brown spices and rose petal. Concentrated, broad and perfumed, with lovely innermouth energy and lift. The slow-building, impressively long finish features serious structure and extremely suave tannins.
A beautiful California merlot.
