Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
75cl * 13.5% ABV * Bordeaux, France
An initial waft of fruit and floral tones - currants, plums, cherries and violets - is followed by a good hit of cedar, old leather, fresh truffle and roasted coffee beans. Silky soft on the palate - supported by all that lush, perfumed fruit - with a faint suggestion of tannin. Ready to drink, but will hold until 2024.
