Vibrant black cherry color with thin legs
Nose: cafe mocha with leather and blackberry. Laced with cinnamon sugar.

Palate: Full body, sweet coating of tannins with a nice balanced high acidity. Smooth and almost creamy at points likely from the merlot. Ripe raspberry with long lush chocolate. Paired this with a spicy dish of sausage so got a cracked pepper and long lasting finish.

Enjoyed this quite a bit. Costco special which is becoming my go too. Would like to try this alone and will likely climb into the 90+ range for me.

40% Malbec
30% Merlot
30% Cabernet Sauvignon

A little sharp to the taste, which obscured some of the fruit flavors

Dark cherry and berry notes. A oaky smokey note as well on the nose. A nice finish with a bit of smoke and peppery spice. Wonderful with grilled steak.
