This might be the best Merlot Coho has produced yet to date.  A blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the great Michael Black vineyard in Coombsville (which is now officially an Appellation).   On the nose this wine shows of its great character immediately.  One is greeted by lush black and red currants, hints of coffee and a touch of anise.  The palate of this multi-layered wine is amazingly polished and well-balanced.  Gobs of black currant and chocolate coat this intense sultry body, leading into a very complex and long fish.  This incredible undertaking will turn lots of heads! As always very limited!

91 Points Connoisseur Guide: "From its concentrated aromas of black cherries and creamy oak to its intense flavors, this inviting effort impresses with its richness and its fine fruity presence, and, at every stop, it shows the succulence unique to
classic Merlot. It is full and supple yet never steers to softness and sports plenty of vitality and terrific palatal length, and, although a fairly big wine, it shows a careful winemaking hand. Those who can resist its immediate charms and leave it alone for another five of six years will be rewarded with a many-layered Merlot that successfully combines ripeness and grace as few do."
