CLARENDON HILLS Merlot 'Brookman' 2009

The Brookman Vineyard has very old vines and is located in in the cool climate of Blewitt Springs that is just outside of McLaren Vale. Merlot tends to grow very well here, as their '08 bottling was equally as good. This Merlot has aromas of prune, red cherry and milk chocolate. There are flavors of anise, roasted figs, dill, blackberry and black cherry. This is a lovely mineral driven wine that impresses. These guys are known for combining this amazing richness and terroir. This is hard to resist right now. (Best 2015-2025) - November, 2015 (OB)
