Easy to drink, simple, no crazy notes. Pretty good for on sale bottle.

Tasted side by side with Barossa Valley Merlot. Far more savory on the nose with a bit more structure coming from the cab sauv and cab franc. Longer finish comparatively speaking but nothing to blow you away. 85% Merlot along with Cab. Sauv./Franc, Malbec & 2% other.
