There's a ruffle of herbaceous, green leaves that lingers from nose to finish, adding freshness to this otherwise rich, sumptuous Merlot. The mouthfeel is robust and velvety, with layers of fine, penetrating tannins that linger long on the finish. Enjoy now after a robust decant, but better yet from 2016-2019.
