Well this is not a surprise after researching this producer. Cheapest by far of their cab-based offerings from Ballard and Happy canyon. Not particularly dense, hugely ripe-fruited in the nose which blows off to match the slightly less fruit in the body. Appropriately tannic and acidic. Wonderful finish and balance and really a great deal. Seems like the site said a fair Merlot proportion. Kinda fat and lush, but in a way wine snobs can appreciate.
