Merlot, Kabaj

Brand:
£27.49
Short description:

VINTAGE 2013

One of the best Merlot ever!

Color, Aroma and Taste: Ruby red colour, dense in a glass. Ripe plum, plum jam aroma with a hint of smoke. Rich and full taste in the mouth. Long finish, still a bit tannic, with not very rough texture of tannins. It is still going through the phase of structuring. It will gradually smooth out and take on the characteristics of a typical Merlot. It's a perfect match for strong tasting meat dishes and grilled red meat.
