The Wine Advocate Rates 2008 Merlot 90+ Points

"Notes of balsam wood, Asian spices, violets, cassis, & black currant compose the bouquet of this structured, medium-bodied, elegant Merlot."

Dr Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate, September 2011

"The 2008 Merlot Blend contains 14.3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot was sourced from 3 AVAs and prime vineyard sites and aged in predominantly new French oak. Notes of balsam  wood, Asian spices, violets, cassis, and black currant compose the bouquet of this structured, medium-bodied, elegant Merlot. It will benefit from 3-4 years of additional cellaring and will provide optimal drinking from 2014-2023. 90+ Points

"French ex-pat Marie-Eve Gilla is a partner and winemaker of Forgeron Cellars, located in Walla Walla. These are the finest wines I have tasted to date from this reliable source."
