The 2007 Uriah Merlot Blend contains 60% Merlot 28% Cabernet Franc with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It is considerably more complex aromatically than the Muleskinner cuvee with enticing notes of black fruits and Asian spices. Full-bodied and still tightly wound on the palate this structured offering will benefit from several more years of cellaring. Well-balanced smooth-textured and long it will have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2027. 92+ -Jay Miller

Tight with a red pepper edge to the cherry currant and multiple spice flavors echoing impressively on the mildly chewy finish. Needs time to gain some flesh. Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2011... Tight with a red pepper edge to the cherry currant and multiple spice flavors echoing impressively on the mildly chewy finish.

This new Uriah is 60% Merlot 28% Cabernet Franc 6% Petit Verdot and 6% Malbec-all estate-grown.

This new Uriah is 60% Merlot 28% Cabernet Franc 6% Petit Verdot and 6% Malbec-all estate-grown. It offers more complexity and detail than the rest of the Spring Valley line-up and carries its almost 15% alcohol well. Whiffs of wood smoke tobacco and marzipan lead into a lovely mix of red fruits spices and barrel flavors. It's just a bit hot in the finish; and the tannins seem attenuated but that may be due to its youth. A fine bottle. P.G.

60% Merlot - 28% Cabernet Franc -6% Petit Verdot - 6% Malbec. Deep ruby purple that is almost black at the core. The nose is distinctly Bordeaux-esque with black plum and a lovely perfume of cigar box and fresh earth. ... 60% Merlot - 28% Cabernet Franc -6% Petit Verdot - 6% Malbec. Deep ruby purple that is almost black at the core. The nose is distinctly Bordeaux-esque with black plum and a lovely perfume of cigar box and fresh earth. The palate has the precision of a higher latitude appellation with medium to high acidity that pushes ultra-ripe black cherry and plum flavors. There are polished round tannins that lead to a mocha and vanillin finish that is smooth and lengthy.
