    The very pinnacle of Merlot. My original tasting notes say, "Wow, wow, wow!" And that is putting it mildly. Wet stone and gravel greet the nose and are immediately followed by a rush of sweet, ripe fruit (raspberry, Bing cherry, cassis, and blueberry) and wonderful spice. Elegantly perfumed and with an approach that is seamless, it is a wine that draws you back to the glass again and again. Lou Kapcsandy has crafted here one of the very best wines of the 2014 vintage. I suppose you could lay this beauty down for several years, but then, why wait? It is impossible to resist now. A desert island wine, if there ever was one.

    Tasted at the estate with Lou. One of the greatest wines of a trip that included some serious Napa elite. Soft but intense, fleshy, and extremely expressive, there is amazing juicy acidity that brings forward purple and black fruits supported by incredible texture and waves of flavor. Deep, complex, and nearly the perfect amounts of everything, it was stunning for me and everyone sitting around the table. Lou said he meant it to rival the Petrus/Pin/Massetos of the world, and the 2014 does that easily. I'll remember this one for a long time to come. Literally impossible to resist now, a few years in the cellar will help all the same and it will be compelling for twenty years or more.
