FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A dark and expressive Merlot from vigneron Neal Cave. Look for dark flavours in the plum and cocoa spectrum with good mid-palate drive and a lovely line of creamy acidity rounding out the palate. A solid effort from the great 2021 vintage.
Sam Kim writes "It's attractively fruited and beautifully fragrant on the nose with dark plum, sweet cherry, dried herb and toasted almond characters. The palate delivers juicy fruit flavours with supple texture and fine-grained tannins, finishing lingering and succulent. Well rounded and soothing with elegant complexity and refinement. A blend of Merlot & Cabernet Franc."
