This half-bottle size will have softened sooner than the review below estimates. Well-ripened and well-defined as Merlot with lots of sweet oak working in league with its ample black cherry fruit, this weighty, comparatively fleshy, but nicely rounded wine hits the varietal nail on the head in terms of both taste and texture. It picks up a bit of Cabernet’s sturdiness en route to its lengthy, moderately tannic finish, but its tougher side will be tamed by time, and five years in the cellar should do the trick.
