Community Tasting Note

  • Gestalted wrote: (94 points)

    June 7, 2013 - Nose is bright cherry and SO misleading. The mid palate is intensely rich and polished with a kick of rich oak, plum, baking spices and vanilla. For a cool vintage, this is stellar!!!

    Second tasting 7/12. Just remarkable. This has to be one of the best US Merlots I can recall. The flavors are just so deep, rich and balanced. Each sip I crave more.

    Consumed at at cellar temp: 60°-65° F. Friends don't let friends drink red wine at room temp!
