2010 Long Shadows "Pedestal" Columbia Valley Merlot

SKU #1143765 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A big, rich Merlot that’s made by famed Bordeaux consultant Michel Rolland, the 2010 Merlot Pedestal (81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers knockout aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, black raspberry, crushed flowers, licorice and big minerality to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple and sexy palate that firms up beautifully on the finish. There’s big fruit here, yet overall, it remains perfectly balanced and has sound underlying tannic structure. Give it 3-4 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following decade or more. Drink now-2020. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

Outer quote mark Good bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Sexy black raspberry, cherry and chocolate on the nose. Suave, silky, rich and concentrated, offering lovely inner-mouth floral perfume to its plush dark berry and spicy oak flavors. This juicy, nicely balanced, mouthfilling Merlot really saturates the palate and vibrates on the long, perfumed finish. Tannins are nicely fine-grained. Inner quote mark (11/2013)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Editors' Choice* Consulting winemaker Michel Rolland oversees this Long Shadows Merlot, which includes 19% Cabernet Sauvignon (from Red Mountain’s Tapteil Vineyard) in the blend. It’s a flat out yummy wine from the moment the cork is pulled, loaded with spice and thick, ripe, dense tannins. There’s plenty of rich fruit to balance the depth of flavor from a generous mix of new French oak. It would be hard to find a better Merlot from anywhere at this price. Inner quote mark (11/2013)
