"Gutsy but polished, with ambitious mocha- and vanilla-tinged toast leading the way for thickly layered plum sauce, fig and currant paste notes. The long, fleshy finish opens up in the glass. Drink now through 2011. 1,450 cases made. –JM" -Rated 90, Wine Spectator
"A delicious, savory nose of marinated beef, basil, chopped herbs and spice give this Merlot an enticing start. On the palate it's a chewy, earthy red with blasamic and pepper accents. A very interesting wine with solo sipping appeal, though pair with duck or a steak for added appeal. - S.K. (11/15/2008)" -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast
