Not the typical fruit forward merlot. It's more like a good Cab with spicy note and firm tannins, but leaner yet more elegant. Very vibrant on the palate. Long finish. Just let it breathe!

Battle wounds, still a winner. A bargain at twice the price.

Too light for me at first but opened up well, more flavor. Great at 12th ave grill for Shannon's birthday!

Cherry, chocolate, tobacco, smoke and blueberry. This has the makings of a great Merlot but falls short of elite.
