So this precise wine also appeared on 2014’s paper 2…who knew? The wine of the Merlot / Carmenère line-up. Deep ruby-black. Deep and full – a big wine, but savoury and balanced. Savoury, gravelly and smoky; ripe but earthy. Plum and damson. Cedar and herb touches. Complex. Blue and sweet black fruit entry. Smoky, full mid-palate. Dense fruit. Espresso touch. Earthy, grippy tannins emerge through the slightly hot finish – giving the Pomerol touch, in a ripe vintage. Moderate tannins and some acidity.
