Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas of bark, red and black cherries and rosemary. Medium-to full-bodied with soft tannins. Plummy and mellow. A hint of coffee comes through."

92 Points - Vinous: (2018 vintage)
"The 2018 Merlot Columbia Valley is a terrific effort. This wine exudes good value with its core of black currant and black cherry flavors alongside copious minerals and chocolate undercurrents. Great to savor now, this has at least another decade in front of it." -OB (10/21)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast: (2018 vintage)
"The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of roasted coffee bean, incense, dark chocolate and raspberry. Plump, chocolaty flavors follow. There's a vibrant freshness to it, though the style is plenty ripe."
