TASTING NOTES

"Big and fleshy, with loads of blackberry, dark chocolate, olive and vanilla character. Full and chewy, with beautiful ripe fruit and quality tannins. This is juicy. Layered, dense and beautiful. A Merlot for the cellar. Best after 2012. 1,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The estate's 2006 Galatrona (100% Merlot) is especially large-scaled in this vintage, with tons of super-ripe dark fruit, new leather, spices and minerals. The Galatrona presents an intriguing combination of soft-textured, generous fruit wedded to sheer power in a sumptuous, full-bodied style. The tannins are present, but the wine's sheer density creates an impression of seamless opulence. This immensely rewarding Galatrona should continue to develop beautifully in bottle."
