Tasted the 2009 and the 2010 side-by-side at Total Wine. The 2009 blew me away and I found a bottle to take home in the bin. But, when I went back for more, they were out of the 2009. Found more at another store location and purchased and drank. YUM!! Full-bodied. Vanilla notes. Will buy more to stock up as my budget permits!
This was rated 90 pts by Wine Spectator and marked as a Smart Buy in June 3013 issue. It was a really good Merlot with some nice deep berry flavors balanced with a good peppery/tannin level. Definitely would buy again at less than $21/bottle.
