Tinhorn Creek Vineyards 2011 Oldfield Series Merlot - 90+pts
Availability: Available in September. Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: July 30th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A sweetly scented, complex Merlot blended with 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Syrah that offers a developed bouquet of beautiful, pot-pourri, ripe blackberry, blueberry, vanilla and exotic chai spice aromas.
Quaff the nose for hours while the wine opens in your glass to reveal a well-structured, dry palate of fine tannins, wild berry acidity and flavours of blue fruit, cherry-cola and spices. Ready to go now, though, will hold for many years in your cellar with some further development. Drink 2014-2018.
