91 points "he aromatics on this wine lead the way with toasty raspberry strudel and bits of cinnamon and cracked pepper in promise of the spice to follow. The fruit is long with cocoa coated tannins and deep, brambly, dark fruits to the finish. We picture the verdant hills and the mineral laden soils of the Santa Cruz Mountains as an enormous accordian, from whose crevices a thirsty giant might squeeze each and every drop of the wine so delicious as this. $30.00"

91 points "The Merlot opens with soaring aromatics of mocha and cherries and follows with hints of toast and fresh mint. The wine is finely structured with well integrated tannins, balanced by bright acidity and a lush mouth feel. We are extremely pleased with this effort as it is truly representative of the 2001 vintage. Lush and powerful fruit, firm structure with bright acidity, is something we strive for in every wine we produce from the Santa Cruz Mountains. This Merlot drinks brilliantly now but possesses the backbone and stuffing for further development. $32.00"
