Tasting Notes

90-93 points Robert Parker: "The 1999 Merlot Alder Springs Vineyard (350 cases) is superb, but shows a cooler climate, almost jammy, red berry nose, with notes of graphite, toast, and spice. The wine has gorgeous purity, relatively low acidity, and a thick yet superb finish." (12/2000) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Perfumed, superripe aromas of black cherry jam, violet pastille and licorice. Supple and very ripe in the mouth; dense and sweet but given shape by strong acidity and firm, chewy tannins. Finishes with a note of dark chocolate. Very distinctive merlot, from clay-rich soil at an altitude of about 2,000 feet." (May/Jun '01)
