2016 Black Rook Merlot

A lifted nose of roses, aniseed, bramble fruit and coffee beans. The palate is lively yet opulent with dark fruits, cocoa, licorice and structured tannins coating the mouth.

  • Wine Accolade 92 Points Anthony Gismondi

Aromas of black cherry and blackberry bound from the glass. The palate is lush and inviting, with flavours of black cherry, chocolate and licorice. The finish is persistent, with notes of sage and spicy oak.

96 Points, John Schreiner

Low vigour soil that shapes smallish clusters, yielding intense black fruit that possesses both power and finesse.

92 Points, Anthony Gismondi
