This blend is much better than the Wine New ratings state! I know I enjoy a Blend/Meritage more than the average RED drinker, but as you can see I have purchased my share. I am still enjoying.
drinking beautifully now but will continue to evolve. needs decanting for an hour or two. fairly dry, with lots of red fruit, soft tannins, and acid. long finish.
We took a few days off and went to the beach. Too cold to swim but this was one of the bottles we popped for casual drinking. Still young but improved steadily after opening. Nice fruit and balance after several hours. This has now become a regular favorite.
