rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I'm not easily impressed by Merlot. I find a lot of Merlot wines to be 'Cabernet wannabe', but not this one. This one delivers the goods - beautiful deep color, full body, sophisticated nose with multi-layered chocolate cake flavors. Decant it for 30-45 min and enjoy it now and in the next 3-5 years.

Good Full body
A very successful vintage for Freemark Abbey’s wines overall, and this young, intensely concentrated Merlot is a star of the year. Quite tannic now, with delineated blackberry, cherry, cassis, cola and spice flavors, its best years are ahead. Cellar this impressive wine for 4-6 years.
