Grape Type: Merlot
Region: South Australia
88(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($21; a blend of 60% cabernet, 25% shiraz, 8% merlot and 7% petit verdot) Ruby-red. Sexy, fragrant aromas of red and dark berries, allspice and black pepper. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are complicated by botanical herbs and licorice, with dusty tannins adding grip. Finishes solid, even ungiving, leaving behind a bitter cherry note. This could use some air, or a year of bottle age.
