Occasional Wine Note: Merlot was my "gateway" wine, my first love so to speak. Despite the bad pub given Merlot from the movie, Sideways, Merlot continues to be one of my favorites. This 95 point gem is an excellent offering with quintessential Merlot aromas and flavors of dark fruits and baking spices that hit you in waves. In the end, it's just a delicious Merlot that really reminds us of why we fell in love with wine in the first place.

    Critic Score: 95

    This concentrated and complete wine offers luscious dark cherries, red plums, dark chocolate and an intricate layering of subtle spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, cedar and mint. These start in the nose and last through the velvety palate and lingering finish. Grown at a 2,800-foot elevation, the wine should drink best from 2025–2035.
