Church Road ‘1’ Redstone Merlot 2019

Church Road 1 Redstone Single Vineyard Merlot 2019

A bold rush of aromas – varietally pure with plum at the fore, then some eucalpyt, herbals, blackberry, cranberry, clove and violet florals. Great balance – generous and deep, but youthful and vivacious – bright with acidity and fine, chalky tannins. Vanilla and spice from barrel influence. A brooding intensity to the smoky, dark, red fruit. Like the Syrah from Redstone, this shows a musky iron-earth graphite edge to the finish. 93pts
