Natalie's Score: 88/100

Juicy, round and plummy plush with a lovely river of black cherry running through the core. Terrific balance with a pleasing blackberry-infused finish. Merlot food pairings: grilled red meats; mushroom based dishes; rich vegetable stews; 1 year old cheddar; duck breast; pheasant; quail; venison burgers; Portobello burgers..

FLAVOUR PROFILE
? Garnet colour with an intriguing bouquet of sweet oak and cedar, plum, black pepper, cherry, cocoa and humidor.
? A medium-bodied wine that has drying tannins and good structure.
? Rich flavours of black plums, black cherry and smoke fill the mouth.
? Juicy black fruits, spice and cedar linger on the finish.
