"Three Stars!"

2001 Merlot - Beckstoffer Las Amigas Vineyard

A soft berry-scented wine that is supple and full-bodied. Another serious Merlot that is not wimpy or fragile. Fruity, round and plump with stuffing and backbone that will age gracefully.

2001 Merlot - Beckstoffer Las Amigas Vineyard

Strong, oak-driven themes of vanilla, caramel and cream serve to sweeten fully ripe, black cherry fruit in this sizeable Merlot. The wine is never without a good sense of mass, and it has room for at least a few years of genuine growth.

"FOUR STARS"

2001 Merlot - Beckstoffer Las Amigas Vineyard

Fleshy and moderately complex in flavor, this is an excellent Merlot, which is luscious in texture, tastes of blueberry, vanilla, spicy oak, and baked cherry.
