Winemaker Notes

Deep red/black color. Aromas of blueberry, cinnamon, and cedar. Big Concentrated flavors on the palate reveal richness of cherry fruit flavors, made more intriguing with a trace of spice and earth. Full–bodied, this is an elegant wine that is enjoyable now and will be for years to come.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2001 Merlot Michael Black Vineyard (aged completely in Taransaud barrels) exhibits a dense purple color in addition to a big, thick, chocolatey, espresso roast, and sweet fruit-scented bouquet.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich and complex, with a tasty blend of ripe currant, blackberry, sage and cedary oak, it picks up hints of tar and smoke, and finishes with a long, intricate aftertaste supported by firm tannins and some heat.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
