Semi-translucent garnet color and medium plus bodied with balanced acidity. Lots of blackberry and bramble fruit with faint leather notes leading to a supple lightly tannic finish with a hint of pepper. Fantastic old world style Merlot. Delicious.

More like a light cab rather than a Merlot. Berry fruit on the nose. Tannins, lots of them. Too much for merlot. Finish was not long enough. Best to drink now rather than hold.
