Reviews

  • "93 points. First produced in 2009, the 2010 Merlot Stoneridge Vineyard would be a perfect introduction into the Bordeaux blends of this estate. Spending 26 months in 50% new French oak, it offers up a ripe, rich array of plum sauce, black olive, kirsch, cedar and gravel to go with a soft, supple and beautifully fruited palate. Medium-bodied, with an approachable feel, it nevertheless has a great mid-palate and at least a decade of longevity. Drink now-2020." (Wine Advocate)
  • "92 points. Plush, aromatic, and focused, furrowing the plum, currant and white pepper flavors into a smooth stream that stands out against modest tannins. Finishes with flair. Best from 2015 through 2020." (Wine Spectator)
