Rich & Creamy
This wine is worth much more that its price. I have never tasted such a great Merlot!! Wow!! It is so thick and velvety smooth.I was expecting that aftertaste merlot kick, when there was none!! It's just velvet and silk in your mouth and so it runs down the throat as such, just an amazing pleasure at every sip. What a pleasureful Merlot to drink. This one is a special one.
Light & Crisp
Tried this 2011 version because I had absolutely fallen in love with the 2010 version of this wine. Note - they're completely different! This wine slapped me in the face when I took the first sip because I was awaiting that buttery soft 2010 wine to roll down my throat, but like the professional 90 pinot review says, this wine is younger and more crisp. Bottom line is, it's a great Chardonnay but it resembles a regular one and not a unique and exquisite one, like its 2010 brother. This wine is fresh, crisp, young and playful.
