A magnificent Merlot, with gorgeous fruit that's ripe, rich and distinctive. The bounty of complex flavors includes enticing black cherry, currant, blackberry and spice, with a smooth chocolaty aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,510 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator 95

A spectacular Merlot from proprietor Jim Richards, Paloma’s full-bodied 2001 offers up a gorgeous display of black currant and mocha-infused fruit that cuts a large swath across the palate. Unctuously textured, with no hard edges, gorgeous aromatics, and loads of flavor, it will provide immense enjoyment over the next 7-8 years. P.S. This is the Wine Spectator’s wine of the year for 2003.
