"Outstanding" 94 Points
"The 2010 Soda Canyon is a textbook example of what can be attained with California fruit. Tasted over a two day period, it is clear this is a Merlot designed for aging. Hints of pepper, blueberry compote, and hints of vanillin burst from the glass. The palate is loaded with black plums, cherry, roasted coffee with hints of dark chocolate, all with the round mouthfeel of supple tannins. If drinking in the near term, decant for about an hour. Otherwise, feel free to cellar this baby for another 5-7 years." - California Wine Advisors

Winery Tasting Notes
"Our 2010 Soda Canyon Vineyard Merlot is a vivacious wine that displays ideal ripeness from a uniquely cool California vintage. It has a dark garnet color and a complex nose of cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco, lavender, cloves and hazelnut. On the palate, it has a velvety mouthfeel, a full body, beautiful acid balance and a long, juicy finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2027."
