Wow, I literally got goosebumps the first time I tasted this wine! It was the first time I have tasted a wine that reminded me of the Summerhill Spadefoot Toad Syrah (2014) right out of the gate in terms of the unique, creamy and voluptuous texture. This Merlot shows power and finesse at the same time. Distinctive aromas of plum, black cherry, black currant, a hint of violet and licorice on the nose. Flavours on the palate display bright dark fruits at the opening, mostly plum and dark cherries, but quickly evolving towards dark plum, black forest cake, caramel, cloves and black pepper. Another wine from John Glavina that shines in all aspects especially in terms of complexity overall, and especially on the finish. This wine lingers for well over a minute. One of my favourite Merlots tasted in the last year. Also important: this wine is just entering it’s window of maximum potential. The integration and waiting period is behind us, and it is shining.
