 Vinous 89 points (Jan 2015)
The 2012 Merlot Sonoma County is absolutely delicious. Plums, black cherries, mocha, bittersweet chocolate and gravel jump from the glass in a deeply expressive, harmonious wine loaded with personality. Drink this plump, juicy Merlot over the next handful of years.

Wine maker notes
Our signature Bennett Valley Merlot is sourced from the terraced vineyards of the Jackson Park Ranch. Located 930-feet above Bennett Valley's floor, our 110 acre site is planted to clone 181, the Pétrus clone of Merlot. We also blended in 14% Cabernet Sauvignon from our mountain vineyards in Knights Valley, to add additional structure and a rich mouthfeel. A beautiful garnet red color, the nose of our signature Merlot is a collection of fresh herbs including thyme, sage and clove followed by black currants and licorice. A long finish and sturdy, yet elegant tannins allow for early drinking and the ability to age for 8-10 years or more.
