Best merlots around. Soft and fruity. Mild tannins. I get a little hint of herbal. This one was a surprise by a friend. Nice pick

Love! On the nose: graphite, plum, blueberry, leather, a touch of cedar and tar.The blue fruits in mid palate and finish keep going and going. Plenty of tannins although they are not overwhelming. Fantastic with some simply seasoned filet, and roasted pancetta wrapped asparagus topped with Parmesan. Really enjoyable but could even stand another couple years of aging.

This is really prime to pop. Classic SE. 03 a bit underrated.

Green chile and wet earth with cola and Indian spice. Massive and supple all at the same time. Fun and refined, punching above its weight. Fantastic.

Wine #3 in an '05 blind tasting. This does not happen often, but I respectfully disagree w/ the fine gentleman from CA. There is some cherry and forest floor, but the fruit is gone. After 2 hours it hasn't opened up and the secondary flavors aren't compensating enough. Enjoyable yet was hoping for more.
