Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $34.90 (including taxes)
Production: 375 cases
Date Tasted: August 18th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A juicy, ripe, feminine expression of Merlot with puréed berry fruit and sweet pipe smoke on the lightly, perfumed and herb-scented nose. A similar core of berry and herbs form the flavour profile on the dry, yet, juicy palate where a wave of wild berry acidity keeps the moderate finish mouth watering-ly crisp. Spice and mild, oaky tannin notes linger on the tongue. Drink now-2018.
