This Merlot (with 15% Gamay) has a pleasing, medium+ intensity nose of currant, cassis, black cherry with bits of cocoa and chocolate aromas. It's medium-bodied with clean acids, supple tannins, and nicely balanced aroma replays on the palate. There's a touch of grip on the mid-palate. Very good length on the rounded finish with more chocolate and dark berry notes. Tasted Feb/2020.
