Tasting Notes: A full-bodied Merlot with plenty of cool-berry flavours and aromas and a gripy backbone of smoky-smooth tannins. Added notes of light menthol, spicy plum, earthy-minerals and toasted oak contribute depth on the masculine nose and palate. 
Herbs'n'spice linger on the moderate, mouth-watering finish. Drink now-2019.
