TINHORN CREEK TINHORN CREEK - Oldfield Reserve Merlot - 2015

TINHORN CREEK Oldfield Reserve Merlot 2015

See the wine detail page

94 Points

The winery says this is “one our best Oldfield Reserve Merlots in years” and I agree entirely. This is a bold and exuberant wine, beginning with intense aromas of black cherry, cassis and figs. On the palate, layer upon layer of flavour unfolds – black cherry, black currant, dark chocolate and spice. Long ripe tannins give the wine a luscious texture and a finish that will not quit.
