Wine AdvocateThe medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Merlot Reserve opens with blueberry compote, blackberry pie, mulberries and plum preserves with exotic spices and earth nuances. The palate is full-bodied and generous, chock-full of fruit and framed by firm tannins and a velvety texture, finishing lively and long. 600 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorConcentrated flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and plum pudding are rich and well-structured. Chocolate mousse and Asian spice notes fill in midpalate and linger on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2022. 600 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a full-bodied, structured and youthful wine, varietal in its softness and approachability. Cassis and cherry exude forcefully around a core of thick tannin and oak, with an undertone of dried herb.
