Natalie's Score: 90/100

Alluring aromas of mocha-coffee on the nose along with rich black fruit. Pleasantly surprising vibrant acidity for food. Plush black plums and coffee on the finish.

Well-made wine that proves again that Miles, the character from Sideways, was wrong about California Merlot. This is terrific. Aromas of strawberry, plum, sour cherry, bacon fat, cinnamon and new leather dominate. Dry with very good fruit nicely overlaid with moderate, tarry tannins. Could cellar 2-3 years, or enjoy it tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Feb. 2012

Dry with very good fruit nicely overlaid with moderate, tarry tannins. Could cellar 2-3 years, or enjoy it tonight with everything from slow- cooked beef in a red wine sauce, to gourmet hamburgers.
