Big blackberry jam and ripe plum, with plenty of vanilla. Soft tannins, a bit unstructured (the acid appears unevenly in different sips). Overall nice example of the varietal and region, but no need to revisit.

Personally not my favorite, but definitely will suit someone who like more American type wines and drier wines. It is sweet but not overwhelming. Definitely a dry bold wine but not like a Cab.

It is a great surprise... not disappointed at all, I am not really a wine pro, but this is a good merlot for the price .
