Robert Parker 95 Points: “Deep garnet-purple, the 2016 Merlot rolls effortlessly out of the glass with provocative blueberry pie, black cherry compote and black raspberry scents plus hints of lilacs, aniseed, green olives, cardamom and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of bright, vibrant black and red berry layers, with a very plush texture and loads of energy and freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Gorgeous! This wine is mostly sold through cellar door and a few distributors in California.”
Winery Notes: “This near-perfect growing season started early, and we saw ideal weather conditions throughout the valley. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July, August followed by a series of warm days at the end of the growing season allowing the grapes to progress to perfect ripeness. This 2016 Merlot is expressive, showing floral notes of violets aromas, red currant, mixed berry and mint tones. The palate is supported by flavors of dark plum, blackberry, fig, chocolate and just a hint of mint before finishing long and rich with juicy acidity and grained tannings.”
