90pointsWhite Cottage Ranch 2008 Estate Merlot (Howell Mountain)

A wine of considerable power and impact. Feels explosive and weighty in the mouth, with massive cherry, berry and currant flavors that finish hard and astringent. Shows its finesse in the quality of tannins and overall balance. An impressive Merlot that should develop some bottle characteristics over the next 4–5 years.
