Oooooh, smells like dark chocolate covered cranberries. Not the chocolate covered cranberries you usually find in the supermarket but the more expensive Belgian chocolate covered dried cranberries. Yum. A bit of dirt and tobacco as well on the nose. Amazing, spicy midpalate and a big finish – lingering fruit, yet dry. I can’t wait to drink this again, maybe with steak or a burger. A merlot with lots of ooomph!
