(2014) 100% Merlot, this spends a year in new French oak and another in bottle. >From terra rossa soils, rich in iron. Yields are low with a green harvest and careful fruit selection. Serious tobacco and cedar nose, with plenty of depth and a bittersweet black fruit character. The palate is fleshy and ripe, filling in any the holes of the with fruit extract, ripeness and that oak. Long, savoury and nicely balanced, with soft but refined tannins and acidity.
