Peacock Ridge Merlot 2005


SKU 02184


Deep, dense and youthful colour with aromas of cassis, cedar wood, smoke and herbal notes. On the palate the Peacock Ridge Merlot has upfront dark black fruit, a touch of mocha, liquorice and tar, balanced by fine yet seductive tannins. Weight, concentration and a long complex finish.

Wine EnthusiastA meaty, spicy nose offers plum and cassis along with prune and brown raisin, leading to a palate ripe with more of the same flavors. Lean and dry, with dusty tannins. Leathery notes develop, then follow through to the finish.
