Wine Spectator 88 pts - Tim Fish
Aromas of currant and tomato leaf lead to elegant, restrained flavors of plum, anise and cedar, which linger nicely toward slightly muscular tannins. Best from 2012 through 2016. 650 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast 87 pts - Steve Heimoff
Dark, full-bodied and a little ponderous, showing firm tannins and blackberry, blueberry, plum, mocha and spice flavors that finish dry and spicy. Lacks some complexity, but overall a good red to wash down grilled meats.

The 2007 Star Lane Merlot seems to be yet another major step forward in our Bordeaux varietal program. A notoriously difficult grape to grow, Merlot has found a true home in the gravelly clay soils of our vineyard's western bench and the vines are producing increasingly exciting fruit with each successive vintage. In the winery, an effort to identify the true character of the variety at Star Lane is yielding wines of stunning balance, marked by subtle olive and tobacco notes in addition to plumy and black cherry fruit of our previous effort. Refined tannins and vibrant acidity suggest both near term consumption and ageing for up to 7 years.
