Candy fruit nose with some herbs, spice, and cocoa. Fleshy, round, fine tannin. A delicious Merlot with one foot in the old world. Young, too.

2010 - well integrated, fruity, but rather sweet. Soft and smooth. High alcohol rather obvious.

Dusty herbs and dry at first. 6 hours later some fruit. The next evening brought on dark berry, a bit of chocolate, a puff of smoke. Xmas in HK wine.
