At first taste after opening just terrible but with some air it softened to yield an average Merlot with high acidity for everyday meals. Some dark fruits and spices, medium oak.

Meaty and structured. Medium plus body, thick and creamy. Blueberries, black cherries, pepper and oak on the nose. Cherry notes and peppery and woody on the palate.
