Wine tasting notes

Very deep red/back with crimson edges. The nose offers multiple levels of complexity with sweet blackberry, chocolate, licorice and vanilla evident complemented by savoury well-balanced oak. On the palate very rich powerful entry of blackberry with savoury spice, liquorice and dark chocolate filling out the mid palate, leading to a long finish balanced by well integrated tannin structure of great depth.

James Halliday (2008) - 92 pts

McLaren vale merlots are a breed unto themselves, the chocolate undertone of the region one marker, and a rugged density the other; these are merlots for died-in-the-wool cabernet drinkers; this, then, is typical of its region. James Halliday Published 03 August 2010
