Interesting young cab, brooding and serious. Bell pepper, chocolate, chicory, and coffee grounds. Too young.

I’m not usually a big fan of Merlot but this one got me going for a second glass. Medium-full body, pleasant tannin with rich black fruits, mint, chocolate and vanilla. A solid Merlot that’s quite nice and easy to sip on.

Dry with balanced tannins. Asphalt. BlackBerry. Pepper. Luscious berry. Bacon. Love the smoothness of this. Meant to be sipped in the beach!
