96+ Ama's 2010 L'Apparita is super-intriguing from the very first taste. With each passing vintage, it seems like Apparita becomes less about Merlot and more about Ama. Dark red cherries, rose petals, sage, rosemary... 96+ Ama's 2010 L'Apparita is super-intriguing from the very first taste. With each passing vintage, it seems like Apparita becomes less about Merlot and more about Ama. Dark red cherries, rose petals, sage, rosemary, tobacco and licorice are some of the many notes that are alive in the glass. Wonderfully nuanced and expressive, the 2010 caresses every corner of the palate with breathtaking intensity and finesse. The 2010 isn't a huge Apparita, rather it is a cool vintage, savory Merlot built for the cellar. -- Antonio Galloni

A classic merlot with blackcurrants, dark chocolate and hints of new wood. Full-bodied, firm and chewy. This is layered and very powerful but shows intensity and reserve. Needs time to soften: better in 2016.

Wine Spectator, October 2014
Pure cherry underlies the spicy oak in this dense, focused red. Bright and balanced, picking up cedar, floral and mineral elements on the lingering aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2025. 580 cases made.–BS
