Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Merlot is attractive, dense ruby/purple colored, with a nice chocolaty berry fruit, dark, rustic, solidly constructed mouthfeel with less charm and finesse than I would have hoped for. Nevertheless there's plenty of guts in this wine and if that's what you're looking for you'd probably rate it more highly than I have.
