"The aromas have beautiful intensity and are wonderfully integrated with hints of ripe berries, rhubarb, mint and toasty oak. The flavors follow with added components of dark cherry pie, cola, and a hint of toffee. The mouth feel is silky and at the same time well structured,with very good weight and balance as it flows across the palate to a rich and lingering finish."

"Huge, flashy and dramatic, this shows brilliantly ripened fruit and an exquisite texture. Flavor wise, it tastes like pure pie filling seasoned with baking spices. But there’s nothing sweet in the finish. Instead, the wine is thoroughly and properly dry, as Merlot should be. Drink now. —S.H."
