"Top wines for July. Classic California Merlot, with lovely plum and spice notes."
"A very different profile from the wineryís Napa version. Itís earthier, with coffee and rhubarb flavors along with cassis and oak, and rougher around the edges. Thereís a lot of power here."
"Highly recommended...attractive, forward, herbal, plummy, sweet cherry fruit aroma with overtones of toasty oak; medium to medium-full body; forward, rich, supple cherry fruit flavors; medium to medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Easy to drink now."
"What a super wine, huge in flavor and depth of character; a ripe plum pie in liquid form, with peek-a-boo tannins and tangy acidity."
"Smooth and supple, with tasty plum, black cherry and currant, finishing with a nice beam of fruit. Drink now through 2005."
