It's only wine but I like it

Never mind the silly 92pt rating by James Suckling, this is a solid if unexciting right bank red. mid weight, pleasant red fruit primarily, with some oak showing (but not obtrusive). Seems a bit short/light on the finish. Maybe better in 12-18 months? Not for long keeping though. 80% Merlot, the balance is Cab Sauv, Cab Franc and Malbec. Tasted April 2019.
