Winemaker's Notes:

In a sea of mediocre Merlots, Longboard's '06 stands out. It's not only deliciously ripe and generous in blackberries, cherries, currants, licorice, cola and mocha flavors, but the structure of fine acidity and smooth, elegant tannins makes it delectable. Editors' Choice. - Wine Enthusiast
My Notes:

About Longboard:

Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it.

A key Oded insight: Surfing and winemaking are essentially solo activities that can reach across gender, social, economic and age boundaries, creating communities of passionate apostles who know a good wave — and a good wine — when they experience one.
