This is a 50/50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Purple in color, shimmering bright. The nose is dusty with black cherries, cassis, and some char. Full bodied. Soft texture. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is tight but complex. It unwinds slowly. Black cherry fruit with some spice. Good finish. This is drinking well and will work well with many foods. Certainly, it would be nice with Rotisserie Chicken. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
