Natalie's Score: 93/100

Smooth, rich and full-bodied with succulent aromas of fleshy dark berries and plums. Some savoury, meaty notes on the mid-palate. This wine has 5% Malbec in the blend and was aged for 18 months in French oak. The result is a superbly craft wine, with a long finish and a pleasant bite through the richness.

Merlot food pairings: filet mignon, prime rib.

Our Merlot was aged 18 months in 100% new French Oak; black cherries on the nose with a slight hint of meatiness. Great mouth feel, fresh blackcherries, fig, clean tea tannin, complete. This is a good wine that will be great with time.
