|Samson Ling reviewed this wine as follows:|
An easygoing, crowd-pleasing Merlot brimming with black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit along with hints of spice and mint. It's round, fruit-driven and nicely balanced with a gently spicy finish. Pair with Texas-style chili beef brisket. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2012)
