Brought to blind tasting of Merlots & Cabs. Also brought an '06 Havens Merlot and tasting them side x side I got very similar nose and palate sensations...Great! (and I don't usually like Merlot). Very nice nose of dark fruit and earth, with velvety fruit on the palate. Nothing has changed my mind on this wine since I last tasted it 3 months ago. It is still a killer QPR for $16 delivered!
Pretty good QPR, but nothing special here. Tasted blind I would have described it as "red" (i.e., nothing in the profile delineates it as anything in particular, especially Merlot). Tannins fully resolved. Might last a few more years, but not likely to get any better. Good burger quaff.
