Natalie's Score: 90/100

Fleshy yet subtle, full-bodied yet balanced. Loaded with ripe black plums. Lots of layers of pleasure.

Nina rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

80% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot & 1% Syrah

In the glass deep ruby red. Semi opaque.

On the nose oak, layers of dark fruit and berries. Baking spices.

On the palate dry, medium bodied, very soft and pleasant. Elegant tannins, flavors of vanilla, black cherry, mulberry and hint of chocolate.

Long and pleasant finish.

Beautiful wine can be enjoyed now or in a few years. Needs decanting.
This is a lovely, elegant Merlot for drinking now and over the next several years. It’s dry and smooth, with dusty tannins framing cherry, red currant, herb, olive and cedar flavors. Give it a brief decanting to let the air mellow it. Score: 90 Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
