Ruston Family - Merlot
Not showing its age at all. Wonderful dark fruits on the nose and palate with moderate earthiness. Very smooth and silky, with a long finish.
Dettori Rosso Renosu
Aromas burst from the glass, flowers, fruit, with a stony backbone and a cover of mushrooms. Flavors are bbeyond belief; fruit,earth, minerals, all beautifully balanced. Awesome midpalate, and an incredible finish that lasts for minutes.
Anonymous Ne-go-ciant Merlot
Medium bodied, got better with air time.
Barrister - Merlot
Deep purple color, rich, ripe dark fruit flavors, lengthy finish.
Ducru-Beaucaillou - La Croix de Beaucaillou
On opening, a bit tight and tannic. 45 minutes of air and the wine turned beautiful. Wonderful, Ducru aromas, silky mouth feel, long chocolatey finish.
