Big party with lots of great wines. This unusual blend of Merlot and Syrah really works here. Color a bit lighter than expected but taste is mouth filling without being unbalanced or overly fruity. Seems like this would pair well with any dish that calls for red wine. Softened and ready to drink. An hour of air fully displays this.
