A decadent yet complex Merlot blend | 93 points | Angus Hughson – Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2018

Deep coloured, this is a decadent yet complex Merlot blend with lashings of rich blackberry, chocolate, cedar, black olive and earthy aromas wrapped up in a blanket of high quality French oak. It’s bold too, with impressive impact of sweet fruit flavours before a firm bed of tannins rise up to support a long and strong finish. Oak is a little prominent right now so give it a couple of years in bottle to come into better balance.
