He said: Medium red color. Slight berry bouquet with undertones of acid chemicals. Strong tannin/fruity taste that continues into a medium finish. It was a little harsh and just a poor balance of tannins, not a good Merlot.
She said: Radiant fruity bouquet with a touch of acid. Lots of flavor, with a medium bodied, dry(with lots of tannins) long finish.
