Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The deep, vibrant colour gives way to a fresh, plummy perfume with hints of tobacco. On the palate, the wine has lovely depth yet is lively and sinewy with lovely minerality and fine grained tannins. Similar to the 05, which is now showing brilliantly.

    drank at girls wine dinner at Ann Colgin's 1/7/11. least fave of 4 merlots tasted. Italian merlot. more flavor mid palate. near Siena. more acid (like sucking on lemon).
