Highly perfumed with big soft tannins. The fruit structure is full of bramble, chocolate and spice. Supple, but fine-grained tannins support the fruit core, allowing the fruit sweetness to prevail. The wine carries with good linearity to a taut, lingering finish of sweet, black plum and black berried fruit. This is a finely concentrated and proportioned Merlot with sweetly ripe black fruits and fine tannins. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 3-5 years.
