Big Merlot with grippy tannins., high AbV. Nice oaky aromas and Fresh fruit.

Rated this an 89 about a year and a half ago and my rating is unchanged today. Not my choice to open and sorta relied on the person who chose it to finish it off. Mushroom funk like the last time. Muted fruit. Some earthy characteristics but never came to life. Disjointed. Uninspiring. Disappointing as I quite like Keenan wines on a whole.

Definitely a dry merlot, but we enjoyed it with a "fall" flavor meal.

Very tannic, wished I had paired it with a magnificent lamb dinner. Still tasty

Not a typical merlot. Given the big fruit and spice it drank more like a zin, which I like. Definitely going to look for this at this store.
