2007 Pedestal

Pedestal Merlot - Wine Advocate

 "It reveals a fragrant nose of sandalwood, incense, sage, cinnamon, black cherry, and black currant. Elegant on the palate despite its ample size, it is loaded with succulent fruit set off by enough ripe tannin to support an additional 3-4 years of cellaring. It will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2027."



Pedestal Merlot - Wine Spectator

 "Aromatically pure and focused, brimming with blakberry and currant fruit shaded with white pepper and allspice. Hints at wet earth as the finish persists impressively. It seems like this can go on for a long time in the cellar."



Pedestal Merlot - Wine Enthusiast

 "The ripeness is immediately noticeable in the liquorous nose. Supple and smooth in the mouth, it shows a blend of pretty purple fruits and polished tannins, layered with barrel flavors emphasizing espresso and strong toast. Classic Michel Rolland, inviting and generous."
