2009 Wine Spectator - 92 points - This is focused, ripe, deftly balanced and generous with its dark berry and mint flavors, lingering enticingly against light prickles of tannins on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2016. 2,500 cases made. - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Spectator - 93 points - This has density without excess weight, showing a real depth to its cherry, cinnamon, almond and cedar flavors, lingering against crisp tannins. Impressive for its deft balance and the way the finish sneaks up on you. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2013 through 2016. - H.S.

The nose is extremely refined and complex with scents of bright currant, clove, licorice, wheat, cigar box, almond paste, and orange extract. The palate is rich with bright acid and ripe cherry flavors, and polished tannins linger on a very long finish rich with notes of roasted coffee. - the winery

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Smooth and focused, with a cigar box character to make the ripe blackberry and currant fruit more interesting, finishing with polished tannins. Has great presence without being pushy, and the finish doesn't quit. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2014. H.S.

2004 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Lithe, refined and deftly balanced to show off its smoky blueberry compote and cherry flavors, which last on the long, expressive finish. The tannins are refined, but tightly packed. Needs time in the cellar to flower. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2008 through 2012. 2,095 cases made. - H.S.

60% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc 4.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3.5% Petit Verdot

A full-bodied behemoth of a wine, this is Spring Valley's flagship red and has been in the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of the Year twice.
