Good product. Solid presentation. Needs a little more weight on the mid palate.

Generally not a big fan of Merlots but this is outstanding. Smooth and peppery.

Rich core of dark and red fruit with mocha and oak flavors in the background.

2012 vintage. Beautiful dark ruby color. Red and blue fruits with some organic earth on the nose. Dry but juicy on the palate with bursting red fruits. This is a really drinkable merlot that, for me, doesn't make me excited to try it again.

Ripe cherry and plum with mocha and hints of earth nodding to that old world inspiration. Lush ripe tannins. A very tasty wine. However Not sure if it lives up to all the hype.
