Paloma is the only Merlot ever to reach #1 on Wine Spectator's “Top 100 Wines of the Year.”

Porthos has secured an exclusive library release of the Paloma Merlot 2010 for collectors who are already avid fans of and those who have yet to discover the exquisite secret that is Paloma. 

“Classic” 95 Points
“Complex aromas of black berry fruits, black stone fruits, chocolate, tobacco, spice and floral notes with a mineral overtone. On the palate the wine has a big silky mouth feel, well balanced, with flavors of berries, fruit, cocoa, cassis, and spice, and a long spicy finish. Fruit tannins in our wines tend to be big, but not harsh and are well integrated with the strong fruit component. Enjoy now through 2021.” - California Wine Advisors
