Wine Spectator 82 pts - Tim Fish
Soft and juicy, but generic, with modest notes of cherry, herb and vanilla. Drink now. 118,000 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast 84 pts - Steve Heimoff
A little rough and common in the mouth, with jagged tannins and some green peppercorn flavors. But for the price, it's fruity enough in raspberries and cherries, making it a good buy. Production was nearly 100,000 cases.

Our California Merlot has aromas of concentrated wild strawberries and tea leaf, with a touch of herbaceous sage for extra complexity. On the palate, this wine has classic Merlot character, with bright cranberry and cherry flavors and a light herbal note, expertly balanced with integrated oak and hints of milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with moderate tannins, the zesty acidity makes this an excellent wine for food-pairing.
