Tasting Notes:

Very intense, almost purple black in colour, very lively & bright. Typically Merlot on the nose with juicy plum & mulberry fruit, followed by a pronounced spicyness, cloves & liquorice bouquet. The wine is also starting to show secondary characteristics of red earth, chocolate & ink on the nose, as well as a smoked meat complexity. The Merlot is full bodied with mouth- filling juicy fruit opulence, creamy richness and very soft, textured tannins. There is a core of richness & structure which will open up as the wine matures.
