It's a solid Merlot. What you should expect. Some berry and plum - for me on the jammy side. Not complaining - just an observation. A little coffee and toasty with a bit of vanilla. Nice long legs. If you like Merlots I would certainly recommend.

Sexiness coming back to Merlot. Smooth, well rounded. Fruity, yet nice tannins drying out the palate.
