3 stars "Dark color, sweet berry and vanilla on the nose, softer and sweeter on the palate than the Cabernet, smoky finish. "

4 stars "A ripe, showy merlot with a rich, vibrant mouth-feel. Concentrated red fruit, with a hint of rhubarb and some dry cherries. Notes of cocoa, espresso and vanilla. Full-bodied. Toasty. Wine of the Week. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5). (Tasting panel, www.pressdemocrat.com, Aug. 20, 2008) "

"A varietal classic with distinctive Sonoma County style-spicy herb and vanilla overtones, which give way to full strong black fruit on the palate, nuanced with chocolate. Its round, generous tannins give it a big finish."
