Saturday, May 4, 2013 - Bright crimson color. Great nose of black cherry, red currant, pepper, sweet spices and pipe tobacco and a touch of charred oak. Similar flavors on the palate with ripe dark red fruits joined with a bit of peppery spice and some nice milk chocolate and sweet oak notes on the finish. Medium acid and tannins, smooth mouthfeel and enjoyable finish. Consistently one of my favorite merlots from California year after year.
