This wine has aged incredibly well, considering its pedigree. Fully mature, but not showing any detriment from 9 years of cellaring. Super smooth, deep red fruits with lots of cherries. Glad we stashed a few of these away...
A rather non-descript merlot. Very dry, lots of tannins. Very little fruit...maybe some blackberry? Would pair well with a rich tomato sauce, but didn't work as well with our lasagna, which had a fairly sweet ricotta cheese blend.
A fairly simple and straightforward merlot, not as complex as other CSM Merlot. Already subtle fruit, mostly blackberry, and modest tannins didn't instill any confidence that this will improve with age.
