Oldfield Series Merlot 2011

"It offers alluring aromas of plum cake, exotic spices such as cumin, clove and pepper that are layered with bittersweet chocolate, black raspberry, vanilla and wild herbs. Rather than laying all its cards on the table, this wine is coy. Expect restraint and yet generous fruit. It is smooth, elegant and completely serious. Excellent balance – a wine that has the cellar potential of a decade yet is entirely ready to drink now." - Daenna Van Mulligan, The Wine Diva

Bitter clown tears with a hint of suspicion
