    January 20, 2009 - This is a good wine, not an excellent wine. The pricing should put this above the lower tier merlots - but its not. I would have liked it alot better at $9.99. A bit off balance and tanniny for a merlot. Love thier blend though...

    June 21, 2008 - Kind of boring and one-dimensional, after an hour or so the tannin starts to outstrip the fruit. Respectable California Merlot can be had for reasonable prices, I just don't think this is it. I don't use the 100 pt system myself on here, but I do think 88 is pretty generous. That said, it would probably show much better with food, and if you can serve it to a group where everyone is just having a single glass, everyone will probably enjoy it more than if the wine is allowed to "open up".

    March 5, 2008 - Tobacco, white pepper and blueberries are dominate. Full bodied, but the finish is lacking - keeping this in the high 80s versus a 90.
