85 points Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - September 1, 2009
Properly fixed on cherries and herbs with a twist of sweet oak in its nose, this clean, medium-bodied Merlot proves to be a bit on the tight side once in the mouth, and its modest fruit flavors trail away as scant tannins and truncating acids close in at the finish.
90 points Wine Spectator - June 15, 2009
Lithe and approachable, offering a range of flavors, from fresh blueberry and plum to savory, cedary elements that add interest to the long finish. The tannins are crisp and not intrusive.
91 points Wine News - June 1, 2009
Dense crimson hue. Complex scents of black cherry, plum and vanilla with secondary nuances of shoe polish and black pepper. Creamy flavors of black cherry and raspberry liqueur. Velvety tannins and continued raspberry notes linger in the close.
88 points Wine Enthusiast - December 1, 2008
If you are of the mind that the earthy, saddle leather notes that often signal brett can be a flavor-enhancing feature when well-modulated, as they are here, then you may well feel that this wine should be scored even higher. There is plenty of flavor going on, including tightly structured blackberry and black cherry fruit, and barrel notes that ring in a finish laced with coffee grounds and mocha.
90 points The Wine Advocate - July 1, 2008
The 2005 Merlot Cold Creek Vineyard is opaque purple-colored with scents of cedar, pencil lead, black currant, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. This leads to a smooth-textured, balanced wine with ample ripe flavors and good depth. There is enough concealed tannin to support 2-3 years of evolution. It should deliver prime-time drinking from 2010 to 2017.
