Winemaker Notes

A consistent thread of complex aromas of black berry fruits, black stone fruits, chocolate, tobacco, spice and floral notes with a mineral overtone. On the palate the wine has a big silky mouth feel, well balanced, with flavors of berries, fruit, cocoa, cassis, and spice, and a long spicy finish. Fruit tannins in our wines tend to be big, but not harsh and are well integrated with the strong fruit component.

Wine Enthusiast
Tasted in a rather tannic flight, this baby was even more tannic. It pours inky black, and reveals nothing in the aroma, save for grapes and oak. Yet there are powerful signs of a magnificent future, especially the long, sweet finish of blackberry syrup. Great now with robust fare, but should hold through the decade. Cellar Selection

Wine Spectator
Top 100: 2004, Rank: 56 Ripe, rich, juicy and polished, with layers of currant, black cherry and plum that are deeply concentrated, elegant and lively. A light overlay of toasty, mocha-scented oak adds another flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on a long, zesty aftertaste. A delicious Merlot that's a worthy successor to the stellar '01. Drink now through 2009. 1,650 cases made.

Paloma Winery Image
The property is located five miles northwest of St. Helena at the top of Spring Mountain. In the last half of the 19th century it was a vineyard, but was allowed to return to forest around the turn of the century. We still find old redwood grape stakes and even a few old zinfandel vines that survive under the large Douglas fir trees that surround our home. One vine near the house produces one or two clusters of grapes a year that are put into our Merlot blend for good luck. The purchase of this raw land was the beginning of an odyssey that is ongoing, ever changing, but with one goal—to grow the best grapes possible and make a wine that reflects the terroir of our vineyard.
