Tasting Notes:

94 points "There are only 250 cases of the 2005 Roberta’s Reserve State Lane Vineyard. Completely different from its siblings, it represents a blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, and clearly shows what Merlot is capable of achieving in Napa Valley’s southern region. A wine of exceptional complexity, it reveals gorgeous amounts of berry fruit interwoven with notions of charcoal, sweet mocha, and coffee. Voluptuous, rich, medium to full-bodied, and long, it possesses an overriding sense of elegance that is reminiscent of a great Bordeaux. It will be even better after several years of bottle age, and should keep for 12-15 years." Best 2006-2021

90 points "Deep, bright ruby. Cool, vibrant aromas of blackberry, black plum, mint, graphite and bitter chocolate. Sweet, pure and stylish, with impressive intensity of berry flavors lifted by a floral element. Offers a velvety texture framed by firm acidity. Finishes with sweet, building tannins and excellent length. Very distinctive merlot. Kapcsandy noted that he used new barrels from six coopers for his '05s, with a low level of toast, compared to 100% Taransaud in 2004. "
