Had this wine at Flemming’s in Scottsdale AZ. The color was a dark purple. The nose was nice and complex. Bold fresh and floral on the nose. The palate was overall a let down. Not a bang and was kind of mellow and dark. I think the Merlot in this wine mellows it out. I was hoping for more from this wine and I was not impressed. I woud not rush out. Good wine but not outstanding.
