Even better than the 2001 is the 2002 Merlot a blend of 99.4% Merlot and .6% Cabernet Franc. The good news is that there are 10845 cases of this sex pot of a Merlot. An exotic perfume of pepper herbs black cherries plums... Even better than the 2001 is the 2002 Merlot a blend of 99.4% Merlot and .6% Cabernet Franc. The good news is that there are 10845 cases of this sex pot of a Merlot. An exotic perfume of pepper herbs black cherries plums and raspberries is accompanied by an exciting texture a plush fleshy palate and a concentrated long heady moderately tannic finish. This wine should improve over the next 2-3 years and last for 10-14. Very impressive! This is a top-flight single-vineyard wine aged completely in French oak which is in total contrast to the wines made at Silver Oak.

Deep red-ruby. Ripe complex nose melds plum currant chocolate beefsteak tomato and smoked meat. Lush and sweet in the middle palate with very fine-grained flavors of dark currant smoke licorice and sassafras. Finishes... Deep red-ruby. Ripe complex nose melds plum currant chocolate beefsteak tomato and smoked meat. Lush and sweet in the middle palate with very fine-grained flavors of dark currant smoke licorice and sassafras. Finishes longer and sweeter than the 2003. Very sexy and complex California merlot.
