A rich, silky and hedonistic Merlot, this wine begins with vibrant aromatics of raspberry and red and black cherry, accented by clove, anise and a hint of pepper. The sweet, enticing nose segues to soft, supple layers of juicy, ripe fruit, underscored by darker elements of sugar, smoke, molasses and spicy oak.

Wine Enthusiast

Lovely, with the structure and mouth-filling satisfaction of a fine Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, but lighter and more pliant. Shows flavors of cherries, red currants, licorice, beef teriaki and sandalwood, wrapped into firm but finely etched tannins. Now-2012.

Score: 90. —Steve Heimoff, September 01, 2009.

Wine Spectator

Supple yet complex, with red currant, cedar and spicy-mocha aromas and rich black cherry and bell pepper flavors that linger with soft tannins. Drink now through 2013.

Score: 90. —Tim Fish, 2009.
