Waaaaay better than any California Merlot. Lacks complexity, but still enjoyable to drink.

Plenty of blue and red fruit with plenty of cedar and integrated oak. Drink now.

Blueberries and cedar. Some heat when paired with food. Modern style. Guessing this would do well in a tasting with multiple wines, but this isn't what I'm looking for in a Bordeaux.

Transparent emerald color. Pepper dominant at the first approach. Very smooth and simple but finishes well. Great everyday drinker.
