James Suckling – 93 Pts.
This expressive Merlot showcases the varietal’s ability to excel in Napa Valley with its generous, juicy fruit flavors, intriguing tobacco spice notes and polished structure. It’s incredibly pleasurable and complex with black cherry and strawberry with notes of caramel and cinnamon that persist through the long finish. The wine has depth and nuance with smooth tannins and a lush, lovely texture.
