Deep dark red, opaque. Heady nose of cocktail cherry, black currant, raspberry, blackberry, plum. This tastes somewhat genericslly of plum sauce and herbs, with blackberry compote and A nice poopy-espresso note here that is somewhat unique, lacking in elegance and oak influenced flavors. Not a lot going on that would distinguish this. Certainly has some tannic grip, a peak with valleys of flavor in-between. This Oakville merlot is a bit wimpy, IMHO. Has some classic Napa notes of currant and cherries. Tastes like it sat in neutral oak, ugh. Still, nicer than some at the same price point. Better with a bit of time!
