A cool vintage, this Merlot shows all the classic Bordeaux characteristics expected. Grassy and herbal aromas, black olive tapenade and sappy plum, cherry pit and fennel. Faint hints of rosemary, wood and tamarind. Big, round, filling mouthfeel- while still balanced with fine tannin and rich finish. Drink now through 2025. 475 cases produced.
Beautiful delivery of all five of the Bordeaux varietals. Cedar, blackberry, tobacco, dark chocolate and plum in the nose. Flavors follow the bouquet plus toasty oak tannin. A glimmer of salted black licorice. Built to last but can be decanted to enjoy now.
