Half bottle. Nice value. A bit tannic but totally drinkable. Get more.

Color of deep purples, different shades, pretty dark, and a bit cloudy. Nose of cocoa, dark fruits, aldehyde, spice, powerful alcohol and acidity. Taste of refined soft tannins, thick and silky, refined sweet flavors, medicinal notes, and some berries. Aftertaste is medium long with some more warmth. Pretty good.

Ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of cherry, earthy, licorice, plum, raspberry jam, strawberry, and vanilla. Medium-full body; medium-plus tannins (soft yet structured); and medium-high acidity. Wonderfully subtle nose; plush mouthfeel; and an easy, lengthy finish. Refined yet accessible. Blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Plum and blackberry jam, with a little fig. Also some stone and earth. Moderate tannins and acidity. Good value, easy drinking.
