4.5 stars "Color: deep; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: woody, sweet, black berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: medium dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: elegant; Absolutely Fabulous for a $20 bottle of Merlot. Could easily be mistaken for a bottle 4 times the price! Big, Thick Fruit with a touch of chocolate sweetness. Warm oaky aroma, again with a touch of chocolate. Juicy on the tongue with a long savory finish asking for another sip."
