    Professional Ratings: 93 James Suckling, 92 Wine Spectator

    Region: Bordeaux, France

    Varietal: Merlot

    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 117457

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A vermillion hue and an intense fragrance of blueberry and blackberry. Elegant in mouth, the wine has a fruity structure and mellow tannins. A complex wine that is nicely structured, and well balanced.

    A perfect accompaniment for all meats and game and ripened cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Impressive for this appellation, with ripe fruit and light espresso character and hints of mushrooms. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Best ever from here. Best in 2016.

    Black olive and berry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. I like the fruit concentration in this wine. 100 percent Merlot.

    This wine is worth much more that its price. I have never tasted such a great Merlot!! Wow!! It is so thick and velvety smooth.I was expecting that aftertaste merlot kick, when there was none!! It's just velvet and silk in your mouth and so it runs down the throat as such, just an amazing pleasure at every sip. What a pleasureful Merlot to drink. This one is a special one.

    Excellent Merlot for the price. I have had wine which cost twice as much and still doesn't taste as good.

    this wine smacked my taste buds just right. Tannins but smooth, dry, brings a little heat on the after taste. definitely will reorder in the future.
