Description

Tasted on 2/22/22.  The bottle that Mark and Richard opened came fresh out of a brand-new case from the Merchantfinewine.com Cellar.  The cork and fill are in excellent condition.  We tasted it immediately after opening and I couldn’t have been more surprised.  The nose is filled with berries, the hue looked like it was freshly bottled.  The tannins are soft and the acidity is medium. There is a hint of spice and the oakyness is very balanced, the fruit is still showing very will. If I had to describe this bottle I would say it is at it’s peak.  Mark’s rating is 92 and Richard’s rating 93+.This bottle is a hidden gem and great value at this price.  Here’s one that you should not pass up.
