A pretty Cali Merlot featuring damson plum, flowers, red berries and even a hint of briar. Silky and elegant. 91 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Dianne Sheridan - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This sexy Merlot from California has cherry, plum, cigar box, vanilla, oak and mocha aromas. On the palate, a long, dry, ripe berry finish. Medium to full bodied, very smooth. Acidity and tannins are well balanced. Serve with a roast beef. Too easy of a wine to drink!!
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A smooth and sexy California Merlot. Fragrant ripe strawberries, blueberries with herbal and minty touches in a dry, velvety texture and lingering finish. A great date wine.

Gorgeous ripe berry fruit on the nose paving the way for long lasting jammy berry flavours, spice, cocoa, and a hint of candied black licorice flavours. Enjoy this medium+ bodied Merlot with herbed-peach stuffed roasted pork loin. Tasted Jan 17 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Plum, violets, spice, and cherry aromas. A delicious, smooth and well balanced wine with flavours of plum, spice, and a hint of mocha. A dry, spicy finish. This Merlot would complement coq au vin or roast duck.

Joel Gott blends grapes from different California AVAs to produce wines that are well-balanced and easy-drinking. This Merlot (grapes from Lodi, Paso Robles, Napa) is rich and smooth, medium to full-bodied, with sweet cherry, smoke and vanilla aromas and flavours.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of blackberries, plum and vanilla. Flavours of ripe plum and some white pepper with smooth tannins and medium acidity. Medium finish. This is an easy drinking wine that would pair nicely with a roast chicken. Tasted January 15, 2017.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
A good wine to pair with a variety of dishes…
Presentation: A reserved, understated label that could disappear on the shelf
Appearance: Medium ruby going on garnet
Nose: Dark cherries, green, spices (black pepper), red apple, dark plums
Taste: Dry, medium tannins, medium acidity, medium bodied, with notes of dark cherries and plums, spices (cloves, black pepper), earth
Finish: medium spicy finish
Overall impression: A round, spicy wine, that is not overly complex, but should pair well with vegetable and meat dishes.
