Taylor's Merlot 2017

The 2017 releases from Taylor's are looking in fine form. Fresh, with an elegance, and a smattering of French oak evident on the nose. 

Plummy notes, carried through with cassis on the palate. Fine tannin, tasting as much like a Clare red as anything. For  Merlot clocking in at 14% it works well, neither overblown or blousy. 89 

Tasted on: Saturday 9th March, a Leaf Day
Source: Sample
Price: $20
