• Chateau Ste. Michelle, Indian Wells Merlot, Washington, 2009

    Bright and juicy bursting with fresh blackberry, currant and a touch of spice.

  • Northstar, Merlot, Columbia Valley WA, 2008

    “This wine gets the all-star treatment, blending fruit from 14 vineyards, and aging it in 60% new French oak. It’s a substantial, muscular effort, with dark fruit, earth and tar components. A small addition of Petit Verdot darkens the color and thickens the tannins.”

  • Chalk Hill, Sonoma, California, 2001

    Dense ruby colored exhibits a sweet nose of chocolatey black cherries, mocha & black fruits with subtle oak.

  • Stephanie, Hesten Vineyards, Napa, California, 2006

    This elegant Merlot serves up notes of plum, dark cherry and tea aromatics with structure and body and a fine tannin finish.

  • Spring Valley, Uriah, Walla Walla Valley, Washington, 2001

    Gloriously ripe, decadent and complex, offering coffee-scented blackberry, currant, cherry and exotic spice aromas and flavors that extend and expand on the subtle, elegant finish. A graceful wine that packs in plenty of flavor and lasts and lasts. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

  • Pride, Napa-Sonoma, California, 2005

  • St. Francis Estate, Reserve, Sonoma, California, 1997

    Super-ripe California Merlot, rich and oaky, in an opulent style delivering layers of currant, black cherry, coconut, cedar and spice, and finishing with a long and intricate aftertaste.

  • David Arthur, Napa Valley, California, 1999

    Well structured, with a tight, rich core of concentrated currant, herb, leather, prune and chocolate, revealing extra dimensions of depth and complexity. Firms up on the finish, with solid yet ripe tannins.

If you open it up and enjoy it, it's a good wine.
