Wine Enthusiast 93 points - The 2011 Merlot, a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 18 months in 40% new French oak, exhibits soft berry fruit, white chocolate and espresso bean notes along with elegant, medium-bodied flavors. While it does not possess the depth of a great vintage, it performs well displaying excellent purity and ripeness. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

"Leathery on the tongue, this lovely Merlot, with 7% Cabernet Sauvignon blended in, offers inviting notes of plum and cherry, completely juicy, around firm, strong tannins and balanced acidity. From two separate, rocky blocks on the winery property, this wine is concentrated and smooth. Enjoy through 2021–2025." Wine Enthusiast 93 points Drink 2021-25
