Wine tasting note: 1996 Elderton Merlot

1996 Elderton Merlot

8th Feb 1999 GBP15 Australia Table Red

Opaque red/purple.
Rich, alcoholic nose of plum pudding and mint - upfront, gorgeous, stewed hot-climate fruit.
Full and dense, with flavours of tar, liquorice, bitter berries and blood.
Ripe tannins and fresh acidity lead into a toasty, tobacco finish.
Stunning, but needs two to three years.
