This 100% merlot is partially aged in older oak for 6 months and then in stainless steel. It's round and fruity but the chew overpowers a bit here, overcoming the bright, pleasant flavors of plum and toasted oak. The dense mouthfeel and structure add heft. Overall a good wine and may improve with age.
