Askerne 'Reserve' Merlot blend 2018
Dark and brooding with fruit aromas of cassis and black plum. Complexing notes of vanilla, cinnamon spice and sandalwood add interest to the nose. The palate is full and rich but with an underlying sinew of acid and tannin. The generosity on the nose flows through the palate and adds length to the finish. This is wine for long term cellaring but can be enjoyed immediately if decanted. Drink over the next 7 to 10 years.
