Big but balanced, a cab drinkers merlot for sure. 2012 is just hitting its stride.

Took awhile to open up but eventually showed beautifully. This has a long life ahead of it.

Quite delicious! Amazingly easy to drink and full of rich fruit balanced well by oak. A little acid would be nice but this is great.

Young and tightly wound but shows excellent structure. Needs a few years to really shine.

Smells a bit like burnt chalk. Don't ask. Wow. That's different. New favourite merlot ever. sorry for the short-lived shelf life Emmolo.

Bask in its glory! Ive never experienced espresso notes like this, wrapped in harvest-ripe berries and silky spices of some orient of my dreams. My favourite Merlot of the past year, hands down. -- Wineshout.com

Still so young. Tightly wound right out of the bottle. Big and bold. Loads of blue fruit with a big dose of oak. In 5 years this will be monumental.

Classy, restrained merlot. Chocolate, cinnamon flavors, another spice I can't name, with outstanding structure for a merlot. Bought and consumed on Mom's last night here, in memory of my father. Always an outstanding bottle.
