Wine EnthusiastSanguine in cranberry while offering a velvety smooth, rounded approachability, this well-made, robust wine will appeal to a wide range of palates, expressing a big, leathery backbone of tannin and toasted oak.

Wine Spectator A svelte red, with medium-grained tannins behind the plush raspberry tart and red plum flavors. Chocolate and spice details show on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 24,500 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe medium to deep garnet colored 2014 Merlot has a tar and plum-scented nose while the palate is soft, fruity and innocuous.
