I think it may be a blend but cannot put my “finger” on the blend, possibly cab and Merlot, will check the box again, maybe there’s a bottle with a label
I'm going to guess it's one of your Chileans.

After Thanksgiving dinner, my niece, my son, and I conducted a French wine tasting. She had never had Rhone or Beaujolais, and my son had never done a side-by-side tasting.

From left to right: Jupiter, a southern Rhone (75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah), a Bordeaux (Merlot heavy with Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc, proportions not listed), and Beaujolais (Gamay).

The winner was the Bordeaux (both niece & son favor Merlot) but there were no losers. It's instructive to contrast the different grapes against each other.
