“Silver - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition” Wine Press Northwest - January 7, 2011
90 points Wine Spectator - November 30, 2010
Crisp and vibrant, delivering ripe cherry and dark plum fruit that mingles with toast, sassafras and dry earth overtones. Finishes with intensity.

The 2007 Merlot Cold Creek Vineyard is a deeper purple with a nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, violets, cassis, and black cherry. Spicy on the palate with notes of oregano and rosemary, plenty of savory red and black fruits, and a medium-long finish, it will provide pleasure over the next 5-6 years.

Cold Creek’s 30-year-old vines bring muscle and depth to this wine, which is still a bit jagged, herbal and earthy, though packed with flavors. The winemaker notes that 22% of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, added “to soften the tannins”—certainly a reversal of the norm, but indicative of the caliber of the old vine Merlot. Cellarworthy, dense with black cherry fruit, spice and dark chocolate

The 2006 Merlot Cold Creek Vineyard (which contains 22% Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon) was aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it delivers a nose of cedar, cinnamon, violets, black cherry, and black currant. Medium to full-bodied, it is smooth-textured, dense, and well balanced. Lengthy in the finish, it lacks only the complexity which might emerge with another 2-3 years of bottle age.
