Soft, round and plummy with an easy drinking, red cherry and plum personality, you'll want to drink this in its first decade of life.

From 100% Merlot, the wine is light in color, medium bodied and offers a cherry griotte personality that is for early drinking, with a slightly drying touch in the finish.

Still showing youthful aromas of oak, blackberry, thyme and cocoa, another year or two in the cellar should add more softness to the medium bodied, black cherry finish.

This ready to drink, medium bodied, round, Bordeaux value wine offers an espresso, black cherry, licorice and plummy personality. This is not a wine meant to make old bones. I'd drink this over the next 4-5 years.
