4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "generous and flavoursome"
We loved this one. It's a big softie with a generous mouthfeel and lots going in the glass for a Merlot blend in this price point. Look for plenty of spicy flavours in the dark plum and blackberry spectrum backed by toasty oak and silken tannins. Great value. And we mean great value.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Aromas of plums and dark berries, clove and vanilla, smoky wood tones and dark rose. On the palate - youthful, firm, fruity and dry. Tannins add lots of texture, acid adding crispness bringing out the flavours of the plum and berries as well as tart cherry. Fleshy fruit filled finish."
Sam Kim writes "The wine is wonderfully ripe and richly fruited on the nose showing blackcurrant, blueberry compote, warm spice and cedar characters, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that is succulent and supple. It is generous and flavoursome, beautifully framed by silky tannins, making it highly enjoyable."
