Purchased on the cruise for $66.00 ($38.94 with discount) for lunch and Sabor, the mexican restaurant.

Medium ruby red with garnet edges. Seemed a bit older on the nose with notes of forest floor and dried black cherries. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. Notes of burnt spices, cinnamon, wood, dark raspberries and leather on the palate. Dry medium to medium plus finish. Drink till 2021

Heavier Merlot. Smooth upfront. Lots of earthy tones and spice. Medium tannins and can get some tartness at the end.

Hard to accurately judge as bottle was served warm. Very young and need decanting time. Nose is closed. Medium weight and warm red fruit. Short finish and hard tannins in the finish.
