Like some additional Merlots that I’ve been tasting, this has a more than just Merlot in it. It is 79% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Syrah.
The nose is OK, although it lacks both intensity and complexity. It’s mostly plum and blackberry on the nose, but also some mint—which some Merlot can have, but it seemed out of place in this one.
The palate seems that it lacks acidity, although the technical data would suggest otherwise. There is plenty of fruit in this one, in fact it’s downright juicy! It has lots of blackberry and plum on the palate. Perhaps the fruit is just overpowering the acid. The tannins are somewhat subtle too.
The fruitiness was certainly my favorite
