With its dark, saturated purple color, the 2001 Merlot roars with powerful aromas and flavors of red and black cherry, pomegranate, ripe plums, blackberry, fresh basil, dried lavender, white pepper, smoked meats and olives. Plush tannins and dense flavors are balanced with amazing richness and toasty oak.
- Atalon Winemaker, Thomas Peffer
"...check out Atalon's 2001 Merlot, a sexy, seductive, mocha-infused, black cherry liqueur-filled effort displaying a hint of chocolate in its plump, lush, rich, medium to full-bodied personality. Bursting with fruit, it will provide immense enjoyment over the next 5-7 years."

This is a terrific Merlot at a great price. Every time I serve it to guests with dinner they ask out it. I have had Merlots at twice the price that don't compare to this one.
