(2012 Vintage) This wine really plays to the strengths of the vintage with 53% Merlot in the blend, and it shines through on the nose especially, with ripe plummy fruit present on the bouquet. It is soft and easy on the palate, with an edge of minerality adding a twist of freshness to the rich berry fruit. The finish is crisp, with the softest, ripest of tannins making this an incredibly drinkable wine.
Decanter(1990 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Attractive, fairly open textured wine. Ripe fruit and superb balance on the palate. A classy style of wine with good acidity and tannins in the mouth to match.
