Occasional Wine Note: This Merlot seems to highlight more savory, earthy and herbacious tones than the more fruit forward options you'll produced elsewhere in the region. The fruit is still there, but in a more complimentary role than normal. In the end, it all comes together to delivery a unique, but delicious Merlot absolutely worthy of the noteworthy critic scores.

    Critic Score: 95

    Lots of black olives with some conifer and mushrooms. Raspberries, too. Full-bodied with soft and round tannins. Really savory. Juicy. Drink now.

  • Wine Spectator

    Score:  94

    Refined and polished yet deeply structured, with expressive red currant, dried herbs and hints of stony minerality that build tension and richness toward big but polished tannins. Drink now through 2030.
