Natalie's Score: 90/100

Mocha, dark chocolate on the nose with luscious black fruit unfolding the palate and mouth-fiilling juiciness. This wine was aged in 100% French, 46% of which was new. There were 988 barrels produced of this wine.

Merlot food pairings: prime rib, grilled leg of lamb.

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

With layers of black fruit and ripe strawberry over black pepper, eucalyptus, chocolate, vanilla, and wood smoke, this refreshing wine pleases with mouth-coating velvety tannins as the flavours deliver on the fruit-driven elegant finish.
Enjoy on its own or pair with finer cuts from the grill.
Drink now, or cellar until 2018.
Date tasted: May 2014.
A intense, deep Merlot offering dark fruit and toasty oak. Perfect for a rare, juicy steak tonight. - Community Wine Reviews
