This wine is deep and dark. The inky indigo color telegraphs the nose, exploding with blue and black berries and cassis, a whiff of campfire smoke and a mountain of prehistoric terroir. The palate is laden with dark fruit, too, not to mention spice and earth. The sage and rosemary linger into a finish that won't let you forget them. The tannic structure is fit for meat and aging while the acidity refreshes and causes the mouth to water. Beautiful work, Mike Sinor.

Very smooth, not overly fruity for a merlot, nicely balanced, a bit of spice. Paired great with short ribs. Discovered at great wine shop (Wine Crush) in Long Beach with old friends. Highly recommended.

Great big red wine. Nice overtones that settle after airing.

This wine was better after it had some time to breath but overall a bit disappointing.
