"A Merlot for Cabernet lovers – black currant, cassis and ripe cherry aromas follow through in a sweet lush mid-palate. Candied fruit flavors and velvety tannins are balanced with bright natural acidity, providing a long finish with suggestions of chocolaty mocha. This wine's strong structure and spice is from our own Howell Mountain fruit, while its round femininity comes from Calistoga to create a perfect textural balance." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The 2012 Merlot is a rich chorus of cassis, plum, mocha, tobacco leaf, and earth, showing off a lush, concentrated style dominated by ripe fruit. Full and thick, this puts the spotlight on Merlot's bigger, more substantial side, and will find fans with the Cabernet crowd as easily as it will with Merlot lovers. It is drinking sensationally right now and will hold up to a decade or more.
"The 2012 Merlot offers up lots of chocolate, Asian soy, kirsch and coffee bean characteristics in a rich, full-bodied, opulent, sensual style. Layered, fleshy and hedonistic, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"An appealing texture combines with depth and focus, offering aromas of floral black cherry and mocha that lead to rich and layered flavors of red currant, spiced herb and black licorice. The tannins are big but ripe, firming up on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 800 cases made. Highly Recommended." —Tim Fish, Wine Spectator
