With its classic blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has both generous blackberry fruits and a core of firm tannins. The new-wood aging has added spice although it is judiciously used and doesn't overwhelm, leaving plenty of space for the fruit. Drink this structured wine from 2022.
