Nice dark berry fruit with some pepper and a bit of spiciness. A little heavier for a Merlot than I would have thought. Opened up nicely. Had more sediment than expected for a younger wine (2015). I enjoyed this and will pick up some more. Nice pp at $16.

2002 lush and smooth. Black fruit rich and earthy ripe. Medium body round lush mature tannins velvety. Lingering finish with nice acid that builds with blueberry flavors. Very special bottle!
