This Merlot-Malbec is full of life and energy, hitting its stride right out of the gate. It’s interesting to see a co-fermentation between an old Malbec vineyard and a younger Merlot site. I quite like this idea. The aromas of cassis, graphite and licorice are dominant and leave no room for misinterpretation: you can expect a full body wine. The palate is very intense, well defined and with great texture. Flavours of black berry and black cherry brings up the opening act before the tannins start gripping you right at the mid-palate and followed by flavours of tobacco, fresh herbs and expresso coffee. A little bit of “Old World” earthiness and complexity shows up on the back end, which creates a very interesting finish. 30min decanting is suggested! 575 cases produced.
