Over-acidic, over-priced wine. Muted nose and flavors of cherry-tinged, smoky, slightly green Merlot fruit. But the dominant impression, particularly in the finish, is of unpleasantly high acidity. The acid, besides being overdone, also suppresses wine's residual positive characteristics. - WB Team 2000-09-27
