Rich core of dark and red fruit with mocha and oak flavors in the background.

Ripe cherry and plum with mocha and hints of earth nodding to that old world inspiration. Lush ripe tannins. A very tasty wine. However Not sure if it lives up to all the hype.

Rock solid. Justifiably a top Merlot producer.

Pours berry in color. Aromas of cherry and plum. Flavors of cherry sweet oak and spice. Full bodied (for a merlot) with a medium finish

One of the benchmarks of Napa Merlot. Always delivers plummy fruit, mocha, firm oak framework and well integrated alcohol levels. 2011 was a weird vintage for them, but 2012 reverts back to center.

Simple and pleasing with a tiny amount of Brett (in a good way)

This is how California Merlot should taste. Old school style, it's fresh and lean and not flabby. Such an excellent example of how even well known brands can do it right

Such a contrast to the #wawines I tasted last weekend. Big not a whole lot of greenness here and a lot of plush fruit, silky. Curious to see the progression in 17 and 22
