Blackberry, currants, oak, black tea, licorice, cedar, and mesquite smoke. Medium tannins, high alcohol, and high acid. The cab of this vintage is a bit brighter, but the merlot is broader and smoother.

Drinking the 2014 in 2017. Crystal clear clarity. Light thin legs. Oaky bouquet, with light citrus hints. Smooth flavor with hints of toasted oak and lychee and oak. Very smooth finish with low acidity.
