The plum, rose and chocolate nose is on point. Medium-bodied, silky and lush in texture, the palate picks up on all of that great, chocolate-covered plummy character from the nose. This is clearly a big step up for this 100% Merlot wine! 90-92 Pts

Medium-bodied with ripe, red fruits, earthy, black raspberries and soft textures, this wine has an overly oaky mouth feel which undermines the fruit and limits the potential for finesse.

Truffle, black raspberry, espresso bean and earth are already showing their colors. Round, forward, lush with a juicy, dark cherry, oaky profile, a few years of age will add a lot to this wine.

Truffle smoke and juicy black plums open to a jammy, cherry cocoa filled wine with a soft, forward finish. Give it a few years for the oak to better integrate.
