Wine Advocate | Robert Parker | March 1, 2012 "The 2007 Reserve Merlot is an exotic, beguiling wine. Firm, yet well-integrated tannins frame a core of expressive fruit. This is a surprisingly tannic Merlot that needs time in bottle to soften. Readers expecting a juicy, plush Merlot will need to look elsewhere, as this is a structured wine endowed with considerable energy and vibrancy. The 2007 includes 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was aged in 100% new oak, which it seems to handle, although a little less new oak might have allowed the fruit to show more radiance. Anticipated Maturity: 2014-2022."
