    The 2014 Merlot is bright, punchy and vibrant in the glass. The purity of the flavors is striking, but the wine needs quite a bit of time to come together. That won't be an issue, as the wine probably won't be released...

    The 2019 Merlot is a real powerhouse. Rich dark fruit, leather, tobacco, grilled herbs and chocolate are dialed up. This extroverted, dense Merlot is going to need at least a decade to come into its own. Today, it is...

    Reductive on the nose, this bold mountain red is brimming in plum, cranberry and currant, with underlying earthiness that complements in savory cedar and tobacco. High-toned acidity and lifted aromatics provide a balance...
