We enjoyed this bottle before dinner; it could have stood up to our BBQ, no problem. A very big merlot - with 10% cabernet sauvignon and a small amount of petite verdot. We popped and poured; however, it certainly could have used a 1+ hour decant. Loads of chocolate and dark cherries on the nose; red fruit, vanilla, and lively acidity on the palate; a VERY firm tannic backbone with a nice long finish. This wine will benefit from 2+ more years in the bottle, and should last 5-6 more years. 90 points
