Tasting Note: Very pretty and solid red with dark berries, chocolate and hints of spice. Lovely richness and intensity. Medium to full body and chewy tannins. Great length and drive at the end for this appellation and the vintage. supple and fluid core of ripe dark plums with a very sleek, polished and compressed bed of tannins. Great depth and drive here through the finish. Mouthwatering, pure merlot. 06/04/2018 - Jamessuckling.com (James Suckling)
