Overview This wine is a wonderful reminder of the potential of the New World style. Dense berries and a ripe mouth can be wonderful, after all, so long as the wine remains balanced. While this wine might be on the upper end of our price spectrum, it tastes even more expensive, making it an impressive value.

Nose Our blind tasters identified blackberries, black currant, and a smoky, campfire aroma.

Mouth There’s chocolate here, as well as vegetal flavors and a plush smoothness that fooled some of our blind tasters into identifying this as a Merlot.
