    June 23, 2016 - had the opportunity to try this while visiting Sea Island, GA. Their last bottle of this vintage. No formal note but the entire experience from aromas, flavors, feel, and finish was delightful.

    April 6, 2013 - Very distinct coffee and chocolate and dark red fruit. Good balance and mouth feel, soft and balanced. What a WA merlot should be.

    January 6, 2010 - Funk, prune and hint of chocolate on the nose. Hard time getting this wine to open up. Good mouthfeel and black fruit on the palate with medium finish. Not that exciting

    December 19, 2009 - Very pleasant surprise. Deep color. Cherry, vanilla, coffee, nice long finish. Classic Wa. merlot.
