Tasting Notes

93 points Stephen Tanzer: "Full ruby-red. Roasted plum, blackberry, blueberry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose. Intensely flavored and sweet, with harmonious acidity framing the complex, slightly saline flavors of dark berries and game. Finishes with lovely lift and length, with the fine-grained tannins arriving late. A strong vintage for this bottling." (May/Jun 05) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, concentrated yet elegant wine, with layers of mocha, currant and blackberry fruit. Tightens up on the finish, where the tannins flex their muscles. Intensity of the oak suggests short-term cellaring." (05/05) 91 points Robert Parker: "The big, rich, layered, complex, opulent 2002 Merlot boasts an opaque purple color along with a rich bouquet of black fruits intermixed with chocolate, cocoa, and smoke. A seriously endowed effort with wonderful sweetness, a sensual tactile impression, and a long, heady finish, it will drink well for a decade." (02/05)
