Very good for its value. Long lasting flavors and body, even after opened and kept in the fridge for 4 days.

Deep purple. Black fruit and dark chocolate flavor. I have a colleague, Mark Hamm. 😄😄 Aerator made it much better taste.

I remember years ago really liking this wine. Now I am underwhelmed. So many other producers that have better product at cheaper prices. Okay. Safe but nothing memorable. Why did I buy this?

Sweet, plum, spice, vanilla, a bit hot. Some leather. Lacks some imagination, lacks spark. A bit heavy. Not our favorite.

Started beautiful, with raspberry, cherries and fruit. Dissipated quickly.

An ok Merlot - more of a dinner wine than standalone. Good fragrance but non memorable taste. July 2020.

pleasing, fruity, smooth, very little tannins. Can drink by itself, and went well with leftover beef steak prime and duck.
