Bright medium ruby. High-toned nose of cherry, mint and bourbony oak. Fat, supple and sweet, with fruit-driven flavors of cherry, currant, minerals and cedar and an exotic note of coconut. Brighter in the mouth than the reserve merlot. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins that turned a bit dry as the wine opened in the glass.
