|Carla rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I have tasted the merlot grapes at the Thirty Bench vineyard and they are a treat. So, I bought two different years of their Small Lot Merlot. A while ago I opened the 2010 and really enjoyed it, but felt it need more time. Yesterday I opened the 2008 and it was absolutely delightful. It was everything you hope a mature merlot would be. Full-bodied, balanced flavour, texture and colour. Thirty Bench only produced 294 cases and I am so glad I was able to get a bottle for myself.
