“Merlot - 5 Top Picks” Sunset - January 1, 2010
This is a plush, complex wine with lovely red fruit, vanilla, spice, herbs and firm but velvety tannins.
91 points The Wine Advocate - October 31, 2009
The 2006 Ethos Merlot is a blend of fruit from the Wahluke Slope, Cold Creek and Canoe Ridge Vineyards. The wine was aged for 20 months in 87% new French oak. Purple-colored, it reveals a bouquet of toasty oak, spice box, damp earth, black cherry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with plenty of ripe tannin, this richly fruited, savory, well-balanced wine will develop greater nuance with another 2-3 years of cellaring. It will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2021.
89 points Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - September 1, 2009
From the start, this firm and somewhat nervy young wine steers a different course than do its more rounded and outgoing California cousins. If at first a bit tight-fisted in fruit, it plumps up and slowly unfolds to show a layer of varietal cherries beneath its lightly vanillin veneer, while its firm finish makes a good case for a few years of age.
