 Luscious, sleek and complex, with floral red currant and Asian spice aromas that lead to layered, concentrated flavors of black cherry, white pepper and sweet cinnamon oak.  (10/2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of plum, chocolate and graphite, plus an exotic element of coconutty oak. In a distinctly sweet, plush style, with a somewhat medicinal chocolate-and-coffee quality to the moderately deep plum and herbal flavors. Finishes with dusty tannins and decent length.

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
