Very juicy. Medium tannins. A nice wine to sip on or have with a hearty meal.

A young Merlot for Saturday night. Really rich and concentrated with flavors more reminiscent of Syrah. Some black olive and leather notes.

Kind of a nutty nuance intermixed with freshly dried dark fruit. Round and pleasant. $11.50 G
