Tasting Comments - 2019’s growing season was perfect for Merlot with gentle temperatures allowing later picking. The result is a highly perfumed nose full of juicy ripe plums, dark cherries, blackberry fruits, hints of violets with subtle undertones of burnt fig and caramel from the oak. With less time in oak (18 months v 24 months of the 2018 vintage) the palate sees a continuation of the above fruits with soft velvety, plush tannins that completely fill the mouth. This wine is like a snuggly blanket or a hug from your favourite person, it fills every part of you with warmth and softness.
