TAPANAPPA WHALEBONE VINEYARD MERLOT 2006 – 94 Points

Author: Campbell Mattinson
Source: The Wine Front
Review Date: Jun 2010

I notice that this review was in last year’s edition of the Big Red Wine Book – but didn?t make it to the site. An oversight. Not sure who wrote this one – Mr Walsh or myself. In any case I re-tasted this wine late last year and thoroughly enjoyed it the second time around too.

Nothing soft and slurpable here ? this is serious merlot. There’s a trace of the dreaded eucalyptus running through it, but its overall quality is superb. It’s ripped with tannin and deep, plummy fruit flavour. There’s a hit of cedary oak and earthen, smoky notes too. Forget the descriptors: it’s grippy and bold and beautiful.

Rated: 94 Points

Drink: 2011 ? 2017
