Wine Spectator: A real stunner, combining a distinctive sense of place with briary power and finesse. Exotic aromas of smoky wild berry, chunky dark chocolate and Asian spice lead to rich and focused flavors of blackberry, grilled herb and mint. Zinfandel, Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2022. 120 cases made. 'TF

Medium burgundy red, cloudy in appearance. Decanted 20 minutes and it starts to sing. Very perfumed on the nose almost floral, red fruits and toasty oak with a hint of dried herbs. Medium weight, loads of sweet fruit on the mid palate, nicely resolved tannin and complementing acidity. So nice and round. I have had bad luck with the 75's but this one is near the top. Drink now.

This magnum felt richer, with more fruit concentration and tannins that past samples of the same bottle format. Is big, the % of cabernet gives an extra or depth to body and finish. This is an excellent value and one the best Merlot labels year in and out in Napa. Very trustee winery.
