This delightful medium dark garnet/ruby coloured elixir consist of 45% merlot and 55% cabernet sauvignon. According to critiques, it's good to drink between 2011-2021. It has a substantial and robust nose of earthy green pepper and fine toasted oak. Drinking it gives you a wonderful bouquet scent of rich blackberries, plum and cassis perfume. I absolutely enjoy the supple meaty chew that's velvety, smooth and polished. I also find this wine well-rounded in texture/structure, quite full-bodied and has fine/soft acidity and tannins that didn't bite. Its finishing is beautifully long and nutty.
Although it may have a hint of spiciness, IMHO it is a gorgeous, highly approachable and well-balanced good wine to enjoy.
