With all the muscle and panache of Dwayne Johnson, this Merlot based Bordeaux will hold your attention for the next two decades. Attractive aromas of espresso and crushed berries with violets and black licorice give way to layers of ripe fruit ripe tannins. Density and intensity come to play on the full-bodied palate of this amped-up, Merlot-based beauty. We expect this to be a big hit with our right-bank aficionados, especially at the price.

Espresso crema and melted black licorice aromas give way to a lush range of cassis, plum reduction and blackberry confiture flavors that roll through with authority. Long finish is carried by a buried graphite note and hint of smoldering earth. An amped in style but if you like muscle and panache, you'll dig this. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2022 through 2038. — JM
