"The 2010 vintage Merlot was off to a slow start in Napa Valley, but eventually gave way to good flavor and color development across the board. This is especially true for our 2010 Merlot. Our cool, hillside vineyards, perfect for Merlot, coupled with the season's growing conditions, helped us craft a Merlot with deep garnet colors accompanied by flavors of cherry and cassis. A creamy texture and notes of vanilla result from 21 months in 100% new French Haute Futaie oak. Once bottled, the wine was allowed to age in our perfect cave conditions, making it ready for your enjoyment upon release." —winemaker
"Deep garnet violet color. Aromas of vanilla cream, root beer, toasty toffee, and plum pie with silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, mocha, nut, and baking spice driven finish with finely polished tannins. Rich, concentrated, and refined." —Beverage Testing Institute

"A tremendous wine, this is characteristic Merlot, with its soft tannins and fleshy, appealing mouthfeel. There's an intense core of cherry pie filling, red currants and heady cherry liqueur. Yet the alcohol is moderate, giving the wine an elegant, supple feeling. It's delicious and easy to drink now, but try giving it 4–5 years in the cellar to let it begin to mature. Cellar Selection." —Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
