A cool climate merlot for sure. The fruit is a little greener due to cooler temps, but the acidity is very, very good. Blackberry, currant, chocolate, coffee, anise and nose of rich dirt and wood. Drink now.

Typical of Mirassou merlots. Fuller bodied and a more modest oaky note. Dark berry fruits, wood, forest floor with herbal notes (not unlike their cabby) lead the way. Medium tannins and balanced acidity control a lingering aftertaste that features good fruit. This can sit for mid-term cellaring but is better nearer the vine.

About the same as the Mirassou in body just ready to drink now - no development required. This has blackberry, earthy tones and crushed fig nuances. A nutty core rounds out the flavor. Rounded tannins and balanced acidity make this food worthy...good bottle of wine.

This needs a little time to develop in the bottle - like laying it down for 9-12 months. It reminds me of the '07 Merlot body wise, just not the tannins, which shows that there was not the material available for better extraction. However, this has good blackberry, currant and herbal qualities. Good acidity allows for a refreshing aftertaste. Well done for the price point.

Better and a little more open than the SB. Apple, pear, nutmeg, and citrus fruits lead the aromas. The palate is smooth and fruity with a buttery note that is balanced with good acidity and calls for pastas and seafood.

This is fairly well muted on the nose. Not much, though letting it warm up and swirling well do give off lemongrass, citrus and stone fruit. The palate sits lightly on the tongue and the aftertaste is short. The are many better, this will go well on a hot day on the deck by the pool.

Pretty good for an entry level white wine. Slight buttery note with apple, pineapple and a nutty note combine with orchard accents to give a good aromatic opening. The palate is the same with medium acidity giving off a half length aftertaste that shows well with food.
