Very rich and dense Merlot, the first impression is that it is a later harvest. It’s as if he’s a little bit cute right in the background, very powerful and concentrated. Its beauty is in its development in a powerful, full body, tertiary notes. You can really experience the seductiveness of a mature wine that doesn’t have too much tannin. Merlot is prone to collecting grape sugar, so it is not surprising that alcohols are closer to 15%, but this is Merlot from the land of Plavac. It has been aged for 14 months in already used barrels, so the oak is not emphasized.
