This is a great example of terroir driven Merlot, based on fantastic fruit purity and stunning minerality. Lots of crushed stone, lead pencil and licorice aromas with floral notes and fresh sage. On the palate, flavours of black cherries, cassis and purple fruits like plums and blackberry are dominant on the front palate, with mocha, licorice and vanilla stored on the mid-palate. The finish is different and spectacular, offering cloves and white pepper, but also an uncharacteristic stony minerality and chalky tannins. Basically, you have a medium-plus body wine, with a round and ripe center-palate, a bright, juicy interior and a stony and savoury finish. Layered, elegant and beautiful. This wine will only improve and gain complexity with age. (CWC, Sept 24, 2023).
