Clone 3 Merlot vines planted on a vein of rocky, volcanic soil in our Lower Mountain Top vineyard block create this expressive single vineyard wine. Heady red fruit and floral notes of blueberry, raspberry, plum and freesia are balanced by brown sugar, anise and toffee aromas. The seductive nose and mid-palate lead into a silky finish as fully integrated tannins caress the tongue.

Wine SpectatorSupple yet well-structured underneath, with bold aromas of black cherry, toasty oak and roasted coffee aromas. The flavors are concentrated yet fleshy, with plum, cedar and pencil notes. Best from 2008 through 2012. 490 cases made.

Wine AdvocateHot and awkward, with jammy cherry, blackberry and chocolate flavors. High alcohol gives this wine an unbalanced, chili pepper burn.
