TASTING NOTES

This charming middle-weight continues to deliver consistent quality both horizontally and vertically. Hailing from 4+ year old vines it is classy and cool, despite the dominance of Merlot and liberal use of new oak. It shows maturity (rather than age) and continues to carry its understated fruit alongside and in harmony with the still potent, but gentle, tannins and fresh acidity. Needs at least 1 hr of aeration to recompose itself outside the bottle.
