The plum is all there, solid fruit yet a little dry and tight. It needed food & perked up well with my Lasagna

The wine has black cherry and currant, with modest tannin and decent structure for a merlot. A smooth and pleasant finish. Well suited for a quiet, post New Year's night at the laundromat.

Mumford's submission. Red#8. Tied for last place. Not awful. The crowd just favored bigger wines, tonight.
