Soft, supple, and spicy. Not as powerful or mouth filling as prior vintages but it was a tough year. Solid, but not spectacular from a reliable producer.

Pretty light. Not much happening in the flavor profile. Some faint plum and cherry. Probably paid too much. We'll give it some time in the glass and see if it opens.

Really nice garnet color in the glass. Aromas of cranberries and black cherries. A bit of a plush mouthfeel with some great vanilla and creamy chocolate on the palate. Bright red cherries and hot leather mix well with the dark fruits. This does a terrific job of oscillating between the light and the dark, giving you a complex experience. Great balance and just plain awesome tannins with a long finish. Expertly crafted. The Oakville version restored my faith in Merlot and this one is (almost) just as good.
