Lush cooked plums. Super rich and pronounced. Big body Merlot done in an almost modernish right bank way.

4 years was the sweet spot for this Merlot. Wonderful full-bodied red with a hint of spice.

It’s a decent wine from the Sonoma County. Smooth with oak and berry taste that has a earthy smell. @Ted @Janell

Dark red, cherry and oak on the nose. Medium biddy, bouquet of juicy red berries, classic vanilla and toasted oak, tangy tannin

Sharp with strong tannins, got better the longer the bottle was opened. Next time I'll decant, think it will be much better.

Great nose. No fruit though. Smooth and some complexity.

$28-21
