season to yield a Merlot with silky dark fruit flavors and a luscious texture, resulting in what has become one of the Paso Robles region’s most notable Merlots. Ancient Peaks blends fruit from three different Merlot blocks that exhibit a range of distinct qualities, bringing added natural complexity and dimension to the finished wine. These blocks are situated along the slopes of an uplifted ancient sea bed, where the well-drained, calcium-rich soils are distinguished by decomposing oyster fossils.

Ancient Peaks' aim is to capture the signature velvety fruit character of Merlot while showcasing the fine structure inherent to Margarita Vineyard. After destemming, the lots were cold soaked for 72 hours prior to fermentation for a gentle extraction of initial color and flavor. After fermentation and light pressing, the lots were aged for 20 months in a combination of French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels, 25 percent of which featured new oak.

The 2013 Merlot opens with deep aromas of blueberry and plum with notes of cinnamon spice and cigar box. A rich, chewy texture unfolds with juicy flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cassis. Luscious acidity joins sleek tannins on a smooth, structured finish."

ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "Claude and Katherine Blankiet spared no expense in making the best 2011s possible, and the results bear that out. Readers Read More...
might enjoy this video, which was shot during the 2011 harvest. Among the 2011s, I can't ignore the entry-level Prince of Hearts, which is one of the best Napa Valley wines in its price range. Overall, the 2011s are delicate, perfumed and impeccably balanced. The 2012s are also fabulous - readers may wish to watch videos from the archive of the 2012 harvest and a tasting of the 2012s shortly after bottling. Blankiet fans will note a new wine, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicus, which may become a permanent addition. I also had a chance to taste a few 2013s from tank. The transformation that has taken place at Blankiet over the last few years under the direction of Denis and May-Britt Malbec is remarkable.

"The Merlot-based 2011 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is one of the silkiest, most polished wines readers will find in this vintage. A sweet, intensely floral, Pinot-inflected bouquet melds into small red berries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices. The style is medium-bodied and supremely graceful, with layers of fruit that flesh out beautifully in the glass. Violets, lavender and rose petals linger on the sublime, layered finish. The 2011 has really come together nicely since I last tasted it this past Spring. The blend is 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc."

Opaque ruby. Powerful, oak-accented aromas of ripe cherry and dark berries, with tobacco and musky herb nuances adding complexity. Supple and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering smoky cherry-vanilla and blackcurrant flavors and a kick of cracked pepper. Shows very good energy on the finish, which features supple tannins and an echo of smoky, cedary oak. A little air helps the lumber come into harmony with the wine's juicy dark fruit."
